ABOUT THIS PRODUCT


This is the story of one of the great battles which forged the reputation of
the Duke of Marlborough as one of history's greatest captains. His tactical
intuition on the field of Ramillies led to perhaps his finest battlefield
performance and paved the way for a campaign that would see much of
Flanders, including vital cities such as Bruges, Brussels, Antwerp and
Louvain, come under Allied control. This title, with vivid illustrations and
detailed consideration of the disposition, strength and plans of the
opposing forces, examines the context and consequences of the battle. It
also illuminates the intense fighting at the height of the engagement,
including two enormous cavalry melees in which Marlborough was unhorsed and
very nearly killed.
