The Young Montrose: Montrose 1

Nigel Tranter

7 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Historical fiction

The first novel in the Montrose saga begins the story of James Graham, Marquis of Montrose, one of the noblest figures in Scottish history, who risked everything during the darkest days of the Civil War to save King Charles I.

Nigel Tranter tells the fascinating yet desperate story of a gallant nobleman from the initial snub he received from Charles I, the monarch he is to devote his life to serving.
A brilliant leader, a renowned strategist, a talented moderate in a bigoted age: James Graham, the Marquis of Montrose, is a man of great charm and steadfast loyalty. Reluctantly involved in in national affairs, his most hated enemy is Archibald Campbell, Marquis of Argyll. It seems that nothing can stand in the way of Montrose's triumph.
