Known to posterity as Scottorum Malleus - the Hammer of the Scots - Edward I was one of medieval England's most formidable kings. This book offers a fresh interpretation of Edward's military career, with a particular focus on his Scottish wars. In part this is a study of personality: Edward was a remarkable man. His struggles with tenacious opponents - including Robert the Bruce and William Wallace - have become the stuff of legend. But David Santiuste also explores the wider context of Edward's Scottish campaigns. He describes the effects on people at all levels of society, providing a richly detailed portrait of the British Isles at war.

"With an insight into not just the military capabilities of the opposing sides, but also the technology, tactics and logistics of fighting a war in an opponent's land, it reveals a great deal more than the general view of Edward I. A great addition for anyone interested in the lives of the early Plantagenet kings" (Skirmish: The Living History Magazine)
"An interesting look at the first phase of the Scottish Wars of Independence. Santiuste is showing the signs of an author getting into his stride with this his second book which flows well and is no task to finish" (Mark Runnacles Goodridge, Hexham Local History Society)
"... looks into exactly what made Edward tick, with a fascinating exploration of the king's personality" (Scottish Field)
