Gallowglass from the Author: Gordon Ferris. Douglas Brodie is dead. The Glasgow Gazette announced the tragic death on 26 June 1947 of their chief crime reporter. Just three weeks before, life was rosy. After a tumultuous winter chasing war criminals across Glasgow, Douglas Brodie was revelling in the quiet life. His relationship with advocate Samantha Campbell was blossoming and he'd put the reins on his impulsiveness. Hope and promise filled the tranquil summer air. A day later, Brodie was arrested for the kidnap and murder of Scotland's top banker. The case against Brodie is watertight: caught with a gun in his hand next to a man with a bullet in the head - from Brodie's own revolver. He has no alibi. No witnesses. Despite Samantha's best efforts, Brodie faces the gallows. Is this the sordid end for a distinguished ex-copper, decorated soldier and man of parts?

Gallowglass from the Author: Frederic P. Miller. Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The gallowglass were a mercenary warrior Ă©lite among Gaelic-Norse clans residing in the Western Isles of Scotland (or Hebrides) and Scottish Highlands from the mid 13th Century to the end of the 16th century. As Scots, they were Gaels and shared a common origin and heritage with the Irish, but as they had intermarried with the 10th Century Norse settlers of the islands and coastal areas of Scotland and the Picts, the Irish called them Gall Gaeil (foreign Gaels). Clans involved in Gallowglass were Clan MacLean, Clan MacKay and Clan MacLeod. They were the mainstay of Scottish and Irish warfare before the advent of gunpowder, and depended upon seasonal service with Irish lords. A military chieftain would often select a gallowglass to serve as his personal aide and bodyguard, because as a foreigner, the gallowglass would be less subject to local feuds and influences.

It is well documented that House Aldamas came to power by using its centuries old but proven tactics of cunning politics, thoughtful marriages and well applied military strikes against potential troublemakers. Step for step this brought the lands of Ascandia tightly together in a delicate and complex web of family alliances and relationships among the ruling class of this nation. It has held for quite a long time and wars are less common then in the rest of Acreage. The small nation of Erankhar is the seat of the mighty and noble house of Orlis....

Galloglass 1250 1600 from the Author: Fergus Cannan. Galloglass, from the Gaelic gall_glaigh for 'young foreign warriors', were mercenaries from the Western Isles of Scotland who fought in the retinues of Irish magnates from the mid-13th century until the early 17th century. Without question, galloglass are among the most visually impressive warriors of all time: they were sketched by Albrecht D_rer, were mentioned by Shakespeare, and were discussed with awe and amazement in the correspondence of all the leading Elizabethan soldiers who served in Ireland. Thousands fought in Ireland, and yet so far there has been only one detailed account of the galloglass, and this work concentrates on the clan and family structures of the galloglass, and not their experience as warriors. This book provides the first detailed military history of these fearsome warriors.
