Historical references

If you want to read about the history rather than the Hollywood tale, a scholarly work is 'William Wallace' by Andrew Fisher from
John Donald Publishers Ltd., 138 Stephen Street, Edinburgh, Scotland at 8.95 pounds plus postage. The Hollywood tale has a large number of invented storylines and major historical inaccuracies and only has a passing resemblance to historical fact.
