Black Saturday: The Battle of Pinkie Cleugh

England and Scotland have a long history together, and it includes a number of wars stretching back to the Middle Ages. Among the most famous Anglo-Scottish battles is that of Pinkie Cleugh. Fought on September 10, 1547, it was a resounding victory for the English. Scottish losses were so heavy that it came to be known as “Black Saturday” among them. Want to read the whole story? Give my article, “Black Saturday” a look in the December issue of Military History Monthly, out now in the U.K. It will be a couple more weeks or so before it hits the shelves in North America. I hope you enjoy it!
