The moving conclusion to the acclaimed multivolume biography of one of Britain's greatest military leaders by his Nobel Prize-winning descendant.   The final installment in Winston S. Churchill's four-volume biography of John Churchill, the Duke of Marlborough--a famed military leader known for never having lost a military campaign. Despite his successes, Marlborough's later years were full of struggle--including attacks from political and personal enemies.   Winston S. Churchill vividly recounts the intrigues and challenges of his ancestor's extraordinarily eventful life. In this last volume, detailing the end of his career, Marlborough's story is told with sensitivity and nuance--giving the reader an intimate glimpse into his state of mind. It's a fascinating read for anyone interested in English history--and provides profound insights into leadership, loyalty, and personal conduct as valuable today as three centuries ago.   "A sustained meditation on statecraft and war by the greatest war leader of our time." --Foreign Affairs   "The greatest historical work written in our century, an inexhaustible mine of political wisdom and understanding, which should be required reading for every student of political science." --Leo Strauss… (mere)

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! ( )

Den First Guards, bei denen John Churchill, der spätere Herzog von Marlborough, am 14. September 1667 sein Offizierspatent erhielt, denen er während der Jahre 1704 bis 1711 und von 1711 bis zu seinem Tode als Oberst angehörte und die unter seiner Leitung am Schellenberg, in Blenheim, Ramillies, Oudenarde und Malplaquet kämpften und an allen bedeutenden Belagerungen und größeren Operationen im Laufe von zehn Feldzügen teilnahmen, widmet der Autor dieses Werk im Gedenken an die ihm von diesem Regiment während des Weltkrieges 1914 - 1918 erwiesenen Aufmerksamkeiten und Freundlichkeiten.
