Booklet published privately by the author in 2014, 30 pages. A5 size booklet (N6165)

Dunbar is a small Scottish town in East Lothian, and lies on the coast around 25 miles east of Edinburgh, and this short booklet provides a fascinating (albeit brief) history of two battles that were fought near to the town and which bear it's name - one fought during the Scottish Wars of Independence, and the other during the English Civil War.

From the introduction: This booklet deals with the two battles fought near Dunbar in 1296 and 1650.The first battle heralded the start of the long, dour Wars of Independence in 1296. The second battle of 1650 could be said to have begun the road to Union with England in 1707. Sadly, both battles were defeats for Scottish arms...

The condition of the booklet is generally very good. The cover has one or two very minor scuffs but is clean and bright, the staple spine is intact, and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a small price sticker on the rear side cover
