This book details the armies of what is known as the Rough Wooing the most active period of Scottish warfare, which saw conflicts against both the English Tudor monarchs, and notable internal struggles between the Stuart kings and their unruly lords in the Highlands. Militarily, this covers an important transition period, from medieval to Renaissance armies, the spread of firearms, the involvement of foreign mercenaries, and revolutionary tactics that included early instances of the classic Highland Clan charge. The author analyses these changes and the colourful costumes, armour and heraldry worn, as well as the major battles of the period. Ultimately, this was a time of great success for the Scots. By the fall of Lauder in 1550, the English had lost every fortress north of the border. Scotlands independence was secure and 50 years later King James VI of Scotland became the first Stuart king of England.

Each book in the Elite series focuses on a single army or elite unit, a military tactic or a group of famous commanders. Military uniforms, insignia and equipment are shown in full colour artwork. Featuring full specially commissioned colour artworks of typical military uniforms and equipment, together with organisational diagrams and a wealth of black and white photography, books in Ospreys Elite series provide a valuable resource for history enthusiasts, model makers, re-enactors, and wargamers.
