An unsympathetic, unflattering picture emerges of Bonnie Prince Charlie in this biography, not the usual romantic portrayal that most Americans have come to either believe, or choose to believe. The author has done her homework, though, and has the resource material to back up her descriptions of the prince, both as a young man in Scotland and later in France and Italy. Although I could have done without a few of the military descriptions, this was a book well worth reading. 3.5 ***
Susan Maclean Kybett hates Charles Edward Stuart with a passion uncommonly seen in history books. Every fact she interprets in the most negative way possible. Apparently Charles Edward Stuart was a drunken grifter who took advantage of Scotsmen's youthful idealism. I'm glad I read this because usually Charles Edward Stuart is portrayed in a heroic light, and it was useful to consider that the same facts can be "spun" to show him in a negative light.
