At the dawning of the 14th century, Scotland could be easily characterized as a hot mess. The clans were not playing well together, and King Edward of England was having his way. Robert The Bruce changed all of that. It is a story of leadership, courage, character, faith, tenacity, flexibility, and smarts. Starting with about forty devoted followers, Bruce united and freed Scotland, forcing his terms on the more powerful England. He loved a good fight. This is history worth knowing.
