Ramillies 1706


The battle of Ramillies and its aftermath has been strangely overlooked by historians. Despite it being the only time in his illustrious career that the Duke of Marlborough was in sole command during a major engagement, it has never before been the subject of any in-depth analysis. This stunning victory, secured against a worthy opponent of almost equal strength, was achieved within a few hours of combat and at remarkably small cost in terms of casualties. Such damage, both physically and psychologically, was inflicted on the French army that it ceased to carry any real threat for the remainder of the campaign.

The front cover depicts The Queen’s Regiment of Horse (Later the 1st King’s Dragoon Guards) capturing French standards and drums.
