Abstract:

This volume presents a biography of John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough (1650-1722). The emphasis throughout is on Churchill's character and personality rather than on the general historical events of his life. Churchill was a noted general, an important diplomat, and made himself indispensable to the Kings and Queens who employed him. Undefeated in battle and the master of surprising military maneuvers, he led a coalition of uncooperative allies with skill and diplomacy. The author details the conflicts between Churchill, his hot-tempered wife Sarah, and Queen Anne. Although it was not until the accession of Queen Anne in 1702 that Churchill reached the zenith of his powers and secured his fame and fortune. Churchill's military victories allowed Britain to rise from a minor to a major power, ensuring the country's growing prosperity throughout the 18th century.
