Bannockburn did not determine the battle between Robert Bruce and Edward Plantagenet in spite of the scale of the Scottish victory and of the disaster that engulfed the English. The battle ended the hard struggle between Bruce and his enemies inside Scotland. However, the fighting would intensify and circulate in the years which followed. In line with this, this book explores the importance of the battle of Bannockburn and the Scottish wars of the early fourteenth century in the history of the British Isles. It specifically addresses the direct and indirect involvement of the peoples of these islands in the sustained conflict between Robert Bruce and Edward II and how the wars, and Bannockburn affected the politics and society in Ireland, Wales and England, and Scotland. It also evaluates the interaction of warfare, politics and diplomacy across the British Isles during the critical years between 1300 and 1330.
