Damn’ Rebel Bitches: The Women of the ’45

Damn’ Rebel Bitches takes a totally fresh approach to the history of the Jacobite Rising by telling fascinating stories of the many women caught up in the turbulent events of 1745-46. Many historians have ignored female participation in the ’45: this book aims to redress the balance. Drawn from many original documents and letters, the stories that emerge of the women – and their men – are often touching, occasionally light-hearted and always engrossing.
