Welcome to the War Studies section of the Scottish Fighting Traditions forum. This section is the place to post information or discussions relating directly to Wars in which Scottish troops were involved.
The difference between this and the "Battlefields and Their Archaeology" is that this is for posts relating to multiple battles or skirmishes. For example posts about the Scottish Wars of Independence would be placed here but a post about Bannockburn in particular would be posted in the "Battlefields and Their Archaeology" section. Likewise a post about the effect of the musket on the Highland Charge would be posted here but a post regarding a brown bess in your collection that was used at Culloden would be posted in the "Battlefields and Their Archaeology" section.

Please do not post whole essays in this part of the forum, the correct procedure for posting academic work is to summarise the piece and then provide a link for users to download the file (.pdf or .doc format only please). If you have no where to host the file feel free to contact me via PM and I will host it on your behalf.

Checklist for posting in this section:

+ Is it relating to Scotland or Scots?
-(Yes) Great then carry on, you are in the correct forum.
-(No) Sorry this is not the place on SFI for your topic, this forum is for posts relating to Scotland.

+ Does it involve multiple battles, a war, or a campaign or is it a tactic, technological improvement or a widely used strategy?
-(Yes) Your topic has found it's new home, post away!
-(No) You are in the correct forum but wrong section, may I suggest you try another section.

I look forward to reading your post and the further share of information that will come from it.
