This detailed and easily followed guidebook tells the story of the Duke of Marlborough's victory at the Battle of Blenheim in 1704 and takes the reader across the Bavarian battlefield, rediscovering the lanes and by-ways tramped by the soldiers of 300 years ago.
The author's skilful use of maps, his detailed knowledge of the ground, and his deep military understanding combine to give the reader an unprecedented feel for the twists and turns of this exciting and complex battle.
Falkner, a former British army infantry officer, is a leading writer on seventeenth and eighteenth-century warfare and he has made a special study of the War of the Spanish Succession (1702-1713) and the military exploits of the Duke of Marlborough.
