Celtic Warfare, 1595-1763.

The most important aspect of continuity in Celtic warfare from 1595 and 1763 was the tactical offensive. Up to 1689 this was based largely on the renowned, undisciplined and fearsome broadsword attack which regularly dominated the battlefield against more conventional armies. Better led, trained and equipped British forces after this date, however, quickly learned to withstand and overcome the "Highland Charge", which reached its disastrous nadir at Colloden. Close X.

Oppebro
An excellent exploration of the Celtic Warrior's capacity for war both strategically and tactically. This book is extremely important to anyone who wants to understand the South in the Civil War and its eventual strategic mistakes.

This was one of the best written outlines of Irish and Scottish military history for the late medieval period which I've read. Broken down by conflict and battle, several period snapshots are interwoven into a smoothly meshed narrative pointing out cultural commonalities indicative of the Celtic people. Highly recommended for anyone of Celtic ancestry or students of European or military history. Extremely well researched by a Ph.D. in History.
