The Best book by WSC! The depth of research is good,perhaps due to Maurice Ashley, the assistant on this book, and the emotional tie-in to the subject, John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough, is deep. The better editions have wonderful maps, and even the abridgement, by Henry Steele Commager, is a compelling read. If possible get a second hand copy from the 1930's with wide margins and pull-out maps. Oh, and a balon of brandy for a wonderful immersion in the War of the Spanish Succession. It also contains many insights upon which WSC was able to capitalize when later managing his own dodgy coalition in the war to come! I enjoyed all four volumes three times!
