The story of Blenheim is far more than an account of how one army defeated another in the field. The entire campaign, as conducted by Marlborough, was made up of brilliant tactics, forceful opportunism and, above all, streamlined organisation on an unprecedented scale. The battle at Blenheim was being "stage-managed" by Marlborough from the moment he left the Netherlands with an army of 21,000 men. This book contains 16 pages of colour illustrations showing the fascinating dress of this early period in military uniform, and describes many of the tactics performed by 18th century armies. 48pp. Size: 9¼" x 7¾" Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
