75 yr old MWF. I like historical novels with more history than story. Audiobooks shouldn't have too many characters.
Nothing but battle descriptions. I'm sorry I bought it. I wish audible had a way to return books that don't turn out to be sufficiently captivating to hold ones' interest.

"Bloody embarrassing dirge"
DO NOT BUY THIS AUDIOBOOK! There is a real lack of Scots history available in audiobook format but please do not waste a penny of your money on this 'braveheart' sentimental, nationalist crap.
Just for clarification I am Scottish and proud to be so but I am embarrassed by this book!
