Map endpapers, b&w and color photographs, maps, reproductions, details from Blenheim tapestries. "(S)kilfully draw(s) on contemporary records and illustrations to create this vivid evocation of the battle - Marlborough's attack on the fortified village of Blenheim, the courageous and generous action of his ally, Prince Eugene, the capture of Marshal Tallard and the rout of the French cavalry, many of whom perished in the Danube. Nor has the cost to the Allies been forgotten. Unpublished letter-books at Blenheim have been drawn upon to show Marlborough's care for the wounded and their nursing. Finally the author traces Marlborough's triumphal return to London and the building of Blenheim Palace before taking the reader on a brief stroll through the battlefield as it is today."
