  • As the Women Lay Dreaming

    As the Women Lay Dreaming

    £8.99
    In the small hours of January 1st, 1919, the cruellest twist of fate changed at a stroke the lives of an entire community.
    Tormod Morrison was there that terrible night. He was on board HMY Iolaire when it smashed into rocks and sank, killing some 200 servicemen on the very last leg of their long journey home from war. For Tormod - a man unlike others, with artistry in his fingertips - the disaster would mark him indelibly.
    Two decades later, Alasdair and Rachel are sent to the windswept Isle of Lewis to live with Tormod in his traditional blackhouse home, a world away from the Glasgow of their earliest years. Their grandfather is kind, compassionate, but still deeply affected by the remarkable true story of the Iolaire shipwreck - by the selfless heroism and desperate tragedy he witnessed.
    A deeply moving novel about passion constrained, coping with loss and a changing world. As the Women Lay Dreaming explores how a single event can so dramatically impact communities, individuals and, indeed, our very souls.

  •  A TIME OF TYRANTS

    A TIME OF TYRANTS

    £9.99
    A TIME OF TYRANTS by Trevor Royle
    In this book acclaimed military historian Trevor Royle examines Scotland's role in the second world war from a wide range of perspectives.
    The country's geographical position gave it great strategic importance for importing war material and reinforcements, for conducting naval and aerial operations and for training regular and specialist forces. The role played by women was also essential to the war effort: for the first time they were conscripted and worked on the land, in forestry and in munitions factories.
    In addition to the importance military aspects - the exploits of the army's renowned 15th Scottish, 51st Highland and Lowland Divisions in Europe and North Africa and the role played by the RAF and the Royal Navy from Scottish bases - Scotland was also vital as an industrial powerhouse and acted as the nation's larder.
    Based on previously unseen archives in the National Records of Scotland, A Time of Tyrants is the first comprehensive history of the unique part played by Scotland and the Scots in the global war to defeat Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan.

  • SUPREME SACRIFICE

    SUPREME SACRIFICE

    £9.99
    This is the story of seventy-two men from one village who fought and died in the Great War. They were awarded very few medals and their military careers were unremarkable - except in the important respect that they, like countless other civilians, answered their country's call in its time of need.
    this book traces the lives of these sons of Bridge of Weir, not just as soldiers, sailors and airmen, but as members of a small community which felt their loss intensely. At the same time it is also the story of the politicians and generals who planned the war, and how it played out over four horrific years. The brave men of Bridge of Weir knew little of the wider canvas - their experience was of the particular battles and other events in which they fought and died.
    Supreme Sacrifice entwines these two strands to create a unique and poignant picture of the First World War.

  • Jock's Jocks

    Jock's Jocks

    £12.99
    North East folksinger Jock Duncan spent over 50 years of his life seeking out and interviewing 'the Jocks' - Scottish veterans of the Great War. Transcribing the recordings word for word on an old manual typewriter over 2000 Sunday mornings, Jock's labour of love has gifted us a truly unique glimpse into the lives of those who left the farms of Aberdeenshire, Angus and Perthshire for the fields of Flanders and France and the shores of Gallipoli. The stories of 59 men from 14 regiments, including the Gordon Highlanders and the Black Watch, are told in rich and earthy Scots dialects, and are shared here in full for the first time. These testimonies, described by veterans of that terrible conflict to Jock Duncan, from the 1930s to the 1980s, have been edited by Gary West, academic, musician, broadcaster and Jock's long-time family friend.
