Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from The Scottish Soldiers of Fortune: Their Adventures and Achievements in the Armies of Europe

Their achievements will form, ir is hoped, a stirring addition to our military annals, omit-ted in Scottish history, and will further show how our people, in whatever land they are cast, rise above those by whom they are surrounded, as surely as oil rises above water, to quote a writer who certainly was no friend to Scotland or her fame; and how many of them won the highest honours, civil and military - honours which many of their lineal descendants hold in the lands of their adoption.

It will be shown how Scotsmen trained the armies and founded the ¿eets of Russia; how for generations the old Scots Brigade of immortal memory was the boasted Bulwark of Holland; while second to none in war and glory were the Scottish Guard of the French Kings - that Guard of which only four were left alive when Francis I gave up his sword on the field of Pavia.

Moreover, in this new mine of Scottish history, many, it is hoped, may discover the names of ancestors, relatives, and clansmen hitherto unknown to them.
