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.
