The Thin Red Line: War Empire and Visions of Scotland

2004

Abstract

Over centuries, war and military service have shaped the way the world sees Scotland and the way the Scots see themselves. Using key objects from the collections of National Museums Scotland, particularly the National War Museum of Scotland to illustrate the book’s narrative, the authors uncover the historical forces behind this phenomenon, exploring the impact of the war on generations of Scots. Through union, empire, world war and modern global politics the resilience and utility of the Scottish military tradition is revealed.
