Originating as a group of men raised to keep "watch" over the Anglo-Scottish border, formed into a regiment in 1739 and named for the dark tartan of its soldiers' kilts, the Black Watch has fought in almost every major conflict of nation and empire between 1745 and the present day. Victoria Schofield recounts the modern history of the Black Watch from the Boer War onwards, tracing its service in two World Wars, the Korean war, Northern Ireland, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Drawing on diaries, letters, and memoirs, but also on interviews with living veterans, she weaves the multiple strands of the story into an epic narrative of a heroic body of officers and men over a century of history.
Victoria Schofield is a historian and commentator on international affairs, who has written for the Sunday Telegraph, Times, and Independent. She is the author of Kashmir in Conflict and Highland Furies: The Black Watch 1739-1899.
