Osprey Campaign 141 : Blenheim 1704 : The Duke of Marlborough's Masterpiece

Combining one of history's most audacious strategic manoeuvres with perhaps the greatest military victory ever won by a British commander, the Blenheim campaign is rightly considered the pinnacle of the career of John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough. On 13 August 1704, Marlborough and Prince Eugene of Savoy faced a Franco-Bavarian army threatening to knock Austria out of the War of the Spanish Succession. In a hard-fought battle Marlborough won a resounding victory, capturing Marshal Tallard and over 14,000 men. This book describes how Marlborough's victory crushed his enemies, shattered the myth of French invincibility and laid the foundations of two centuries of British world dominance. Text by John Tincey with illustrations by Graham Turner.
