This is the first-hand account of the experiences of an officer of Prince Charles Edward's army from August 1745 to the Battle of Culloden, where John Maclean was killed. Illustrations are taken from a remarkable series of drawings from the Clerk Collection at Penicuik House which offer a unique view of the participants on both sides of the 'Forty-Five. This edition includes an introduction and detailed commentary.
