Blenheim, Ramilles , Oudenarde, Malplaquet – much has been written about the brilliant victories of the Duke of Marlborough's Anglo-Dutch army over the armies of Louis XIV of France during the War of the Spanish Succession. Less attention has been focused on the men and the military organization that made these achievements possible - the soldiers, the commanders, the army structure and administration, the logistics, engineering, weapons and finance. That is why James Falkner's penetrating account of the composition and operation of Marlborough's army is of such value. His clear analysis gives a fascinating insight into Marlborough's war machine and into the conduct of war in Europe 300 years ago.

Marlborough’s War Machine (1702-1711) is an excellent addition to a growing collection of first rate books about Marlborough by James Falkner. He has previously dissected Marlborough’s career from various other angles – this gives an obvious depth to his knowledge...

This book hits a more niche market but hits it well. The book is very well written, with a smooth style that is easy going on the reader: one should not underestimate the skill required to make what can sometimes be regarded as dry material, easily digestible without losing meaning and a depth of analysis.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it, particularly if you are embarking on a visit to the battlefields of the War of the Spanish Succession.

Skirmish Magazine

The author, having written a number of books on the period, knows his subject and this certainly shows in this, his latest contribution to the history of the British army in the early 18th century.
