Blenheim, Ramilles, Oudenarde, Malplaquet - much has been written about the brilliant victories of the Duke of Marlborough's Anglo-Dutch army over the armies of Louis XIV of France during the War of the Spanish Succession. Less attention has been focused on the men and the military organization that made these achievements possible - the soldiers, the commanders, the army structure and administration, the logistics, engineering, weapons and finance. That is why James Falkner's penetrating account of the composition and operation of Marlborough's army is of such value. His clear analysis gives a fascinating insight into Marlborough's war machine and into the conduct of war in Europe 300 years ago. AUTHOR: James Falkner is a leading writer on seventeenth- and eighteenth-century warfare and he has made a special study of the War of the Spanish Succession and the military exploits of the Duke of Marlborough. His book, 'Great and Glorious Days: Marlborough's Battles 1704-1709', is one of the outstanding studies of the subject. A former British Army infantry officer, he has frequently led tours of the major eighteenth-century battlefields. His most recent books include 'Blenheim 1704', 'Ramillies 1706', 'Marlborough Goes to War: Eyewitness Accounts 1702-1713', 'Marlborough's Sieges', 'Marlborough's Battlefields', 'Fire Over the Rock: The Great Siege of Gibraltar 1779-1783' and 'Marshal Vauban and the Defence of Louis XIV's France'. 40 illustrations
