IN NEGOTIATING BETWEEN VARIED ARMIES AND 
negotiating between varied armies and commanders of the alliance even while he was in title the especially in negotiating between varied armies and petty commanders of the alliance even while he was in title the commander He was clearly duplicitous in his communications with the Jacobite Distancia De Rescate government and discussing bribery with French envoys Churchill makes a convincing argument that he always held England s best interest at heart and that those were purely strategic communcations and intelligenceathering Yet it still leaves me with a foul taste in my mouth "He Was Ultimately A Man Of His Times He Rose "was ultimately a man of his times He rose them in his skill as a Brilla Mar Del Edn general but not in his integrity The different volumes for Marlborough His Life and Times are all mixed up on Goodreads I will link my reviews for the final two volumes of the original series Volume V VI Since I reviewed Book One I felt it was important to follow up with a review of Book Two of this work My initial comment is that sticking with something this huge is a task in itself but often the reward is hard to describe For me I feel each time I finish a huge work like this or Hegel or Kant or well anything Big I sense my own mind has been exercised a bit It s a reward in and of itselfFirstly like Book One this is really Volume Three and Volume Four of the a Four Book series bound together in Two mammoth volumes Reading these 2000 plus pages is like running a marathon the beginning is difficult then you break the pain barrier and coast for uite a long while until the last staggering climb to the finish In Book Three we continue with the war of Spanish Succession These 500 pages are essentially concerned with theigantic battles Marlborough fought It was a time in which his Bibliotheca Anatomica Qua Scripta Ad Anatomen Et Physiologiam Facientia A Rerum Initiis Recensentur Vol 2 glory was highly esteemed As weet into Book Four much like Book One the narrative returns to the overall political scene which dominated and brought down the Great Duke It is also the point where the reader might become overwhelmed again by both the multifaceted political machinations as well as the constantly revolving names John Churchill becomes the Duke of Marlborough etcHowever for all these difficulties the overall sense from both volumes is as thorough and detailed and enthralling as history can be written There can be no doubt that Winston Churchill as he surveyed the ever mounting rearmament of the Germanic states and looking over the ancient maps of Europe imagining both the current and past felt an immense burden of responsibility By undertaking the task of reforming The Duke of Marlborough s image he delved deep in to the vaults of history and warfare It was not surprising that at the same moment he should be the first to recognize at least in Britain the significance of Hitler s intentionsOne other thing struck me as fascinating about this era The whole course of European politics war peace and financial stability were tied up in the lives of three bickering women Sarah Marlborough s wife Abigail cousin to Sarah and ueen Anne whom both served and I Married A Soldier guided withossip and whisperings Out of this small time period bore the seeds of Napoleon the American discontent with England and Slavery Big stuffI recommend these Four volumes two books The paperbacks are perhaps overstuffed though Book One split right down the middle I was careful with Book Two though my hands suffered from it Arguably the reatest biography of the 20th century in the English language it totally delivers A superbly written book about a simply AMAZING life Much maligned in history a fair portion of Book One successfully deals with the charges against Marlborough John Churchill An abridged edition would loss over much of this but you ll lose much of the better parts of the book as wellWritten to a British audience it can be difficult to follow if you aren t up on British history Even so you Henri Matisse get aripping view of the person a The Versatile Border Collie great appreciation of the seemingly impossible challenges John Churchill surmounts and feel the searing shame of a people who kicked Britain sreatest military hero to the curb instead of holding him up in honor not unlike what happens to Winston himself later in life A fabulous biography of one of the most underappreciated men in all of history Rightly considered one of the best biographies and histories of the 20th century Winston Churchill s work on his illustrious ancestor is not only an in depth and infinitely wise look back on the early modern era in Europe in Got Homophobia general and England in particular it is also areat pleasure to read thanks to Churchill s unsurpassed prose Not an easy or light read at 1000 pages of text per book it will reward the patient and diligent reader with the skillfully illustrated career of this remarkable soldier put tirelessly into the political diplomatic and military contexts in which he worked Simply not to be missed by lovers and makers of history. Caulay's smearsOne million words long and ten years in the making Churchill's Marlborough stands as both a literary and historical masterpiece iving us uniue insights into the Churchill of World War II for just as Churchill's literary skill helps us understand the complexities of Marlborough's life so too did his writing of Marlborough help Churchill master the arts of military strategy and diplomacy This two volume edition includes the entire text and almost all the original map. ,

Eon He is critical for Understanding How Stuart Britain Transitioned how Stuart Britain transitioned the Hanoverian kings whose descrendants are still one the how Stuart Britain transitioned to the Hanoverian kings whose descrendants are still one the In his combination of military skill and diplomatic prowess that was central to the unity of the confederation against Louis XIV while remaining subject to his ueen and not rabbing power it is hard to think of any modern parallels although Winston Churchill comes to mind While I had heard of the Wars of the Spanish Succession the South Sea Bubble and other developments during this period I am astonished that I had not realized how important the start of the 18th century was to later eventsThis book is also about the height of pre Napoleonic warfare with its rapid movement of units between "and around set piece battlefields there are lots "around set piece battlefields There are lots battles chronicled in this story A careful look at these battles map in hand is itself a major project and necessary for understanding the story that Churchill tells about his ancestor It is hard to appreciate the extent to which Marlborough and Prince Eugene dominated the scene during this time of nearly continual war It is also amazing to me how most of Marlborough s campaigns were fought in Flanders over the same What Makes Heirloom Plants So Great ground that would be dominated by the trenches of the western front 200 years later The same towns are being fought over by the same players just organized a bit differently with a very different alliance structureMarlborough s wife Sarah is herself a major character in this story arguably as important as the Duke himself to their rise in power early in the reign of ueen Anne She was a political force on her own who became perhaps the richest woman in England That she fell from power is understandable and rapid career shifts were an all too common aspect of British politics at the timeThe evolution of the party system that overlapped this story was complex and I stillet confused about how politics religion and international affairs intermingle with military matters in the bookLikw the first half of the book Churchill s treatment of his power couple is highly sympathetic although he does try hard to raise and consider all of the complaints against John and Sarah His prose is marvelous and while he is clearly rooting for the home team I don t feel like the story is distorted very much by Churchill s fondness for the first Churchill power couple He uotes characters in their own words where he can and is not shy about dealing with controverseysThis is a big work but it was actually a lot of fun to work through If like me you re a fan of Churchill volume two of his four volume bio on his illustrious ancestor will definitely hit the mark It carries all the hallmarks of Churchill s Henry Ii greatest prose the respect for historical context the sniping with previous authors and their contradictory opinions a very British way of ensuring all the details are recorded and an easy writing style that makes even the driest sessions of Parliamentary debate over obscure bills come alive The first half of the volume is a slow boil but it comes alive in the second when Marlborough s militaryenius really starts to show There is lots of intrigue to keep you involved as both enemies and allies struggle to hold Churchill s hero back Grand historical moments like the march of the Scarlet Caterpillar are brilliantly described and documented And the last uarter of the volume is a highlight reel of the reatest early 18th century politi The biography of the first Duke of Marlborough John Churchill by his forbear Winston Churchill is a towering classic about a truly larger than life figure The leader of the military forces opposing France in the War of Spanish Succession he was a masterful leader of men and an undefeated eneral in ten campaigns He was also a skillful minister and diplomat in keeping the military alliance agaist France intact After the war he was relegated to exile by lesser lights but later returned to his former place in the court of England His long marriage to the love of his life his wife Sarah is woven throughout the story of his life All in all the story of his life is a tale of perserverance strength honor courage and devotion to duty and family The second volume of Churchill s biography of his famous ancestor I enjoyed the book and learning about this man and era of which I knew little Churchill is an fervent apologist for Marlborough and he does a rather Heroes Of A Texas Childhood good job of it It s also interesting to know some of Churchill s backstory and see how he emphasizes the similarities he sees between Marlborough and himselfThe biography was prettyood though I would have preferred to have a printed version where I could examine the maps to et a better understanding of the battlesAs far as an assessment of Marlborough the man I can t say I came away with a very high opinion of him He wa.
