Scotland at War: The Fox’s Lair 208 - Je Suis Prest 209 - Prestonpans 210

June 17th, 2016

We are back in Scotland! I combine episode 8, 9 and 10 of the Outlander TV Show, Season 2. All of these episodes center around the Jacobite Uprising of 1745. Episode 8 is about Jamie getting more of his fellow clan members to join the fight. Episode 9 is about preparing for battle, getting the troops ready and episode 10 is the first battle, The Battle of Prestonpans. I talk about Jamie's historical relative - the Chief of clan Fraser, Lord Lovat (the old fox). I focus on World War 2, the Simon Fraser who fought in that war (yes he is a relative), the role nurses played during the war and post traumatic stress disorder. Lastly i go over the historical battle of Prestonpans and of course I always throw in some music along the way.
