The Battle of Benburb 1646

Clive Hollick

The last great stand of native Irish army against Scotland and Britain still holds much reverence in today's society. "The Battle of Benburb 1646" chronicles the story surrounding this conflict, the commanders on both sides, as well as the context and what lead up to the battle. Clive Hollick also shows where the Ulster army failed to capitalize to secure their victory, and how although they maintained one glorious victory, it was ultimately for naught. "The Battle of Benburb" is a fine read that shouldn't be overlooked for World History collections.
