Outlaw King: Robert the Bruce /// 40

Tonight we’re going back to Scotland – back to the front line where Robert the Bruce  is going to roll the dice and gamble it all – facing down the gathered strength of England. He traded wine and women – a comfortable chair by the fire – for the bitter cold of water-drenched journeys, bloodshed and pain. It’s the story of a puzzle called the United Kingdom. I’m going to tell you about the time the corner piece fell off. I’m going to tell you the story of Robert the Bruce.

It’s all for free and it’s all on Battlecast – the world’s foremost podcast on war and its sociopolitical impact.

This is part two of a two part series. Check out part one here: Braveheart: William Wallace
