about

Osprey's examination of the battle of the Willamite War in Ireland (1689-1691), which would decide the fate of the crown of England. In April 1685, James II ascended the English throne. An overt Catholic, James proved unpopular with his Protestant subjects, and a group of nobles invited the Dutch prince William of Orange to take the throne in the Glorious Revolution of 1688; James II fled to France. James returned in 1689, a French fleet landing him at Kinsale in Ireland. On 14 June 1690, William led an army to Ireland and came face-to-face with the Jacobites along the banks of the Boyne near Drogheda. This book describes the events that led to the momentous battle on July 1, 1690.
Michael McNally is 40 years of age and was born, raised and educated in London. Of Irish parentage, Michael has an active interest in Irish history, and military history in particular. He is married with two children and lives in Germany where he works for a major reinsurance company.
