From the rear side cover: The last armed invasion of England began in the autumn of 1745 when the Jacobites marched through the northern counties. The march continued south in November, with a return north the next month, marked by the Battle of Clifton Moor and the siege of Carlisle. Inevitably, the failed invasion was followed by a bloody aftermath in succeeding months.
This book is the first in-depth study of the invasion from a North-West perspective, and it places the people of the region at centre stage. Their responses to the invasion ranged from flight, acquiescence or resistance, to active support for the invaders. The book will appeal to all those interested in the history of the eighteenth century, of Jacobitism, and of North-West England, and it includes over 40 contemporary and modern illustrations, as well as five maps
