Marlborough: Britain’s Greatest General

Richard Holmes


Bestselling army historian Richard Holmes offers an expertly written and exhilarating biography of John Churchill, the Duke of Marlborough and Britain's best soldier. Charting Churchill’s upward push to favour to steer his state to glory, cementing its place as an incredible participant at the eu level and saviour of the Holy Roman Empire, Holmes paints a portrait of a guy who mixed ardour, avarice and duplicity in his own lifestyles with tenacity and utter brilliance at the battlefield.
