Join James Falkner as he examines the military campaigns of the Duke of Marlborough through the testimony of those who fought against and alongside him.

John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough is one of the most revered soldiers in British history. With a military and political career that spanned the reigns of five monarchs, and with great victories at Blenheim and Ramillies attributed to him, it is no wonder that modern scholars view him as a leading figure in the story of the British Army.

In this enlightening talk, James Falkner will examine the eye-witness accounts of those who saw Marlborough in action. From senior officers and commanders to junior soldiers and camp followers, their reminiscences add an unexpected intimacy and freshness to our understanding of one of Britain’s greatest generals.
