The Spanish theatre was crucial to the outcome of the War of the Spanish Succession and yet it
is not well known. This book looks in detail at the vital 1710 campaign in the Peninsula. This
campaign was the last chance for Marlborough’s forces to seize a decisive advantage in this
important theatre.

The campaign ebbed and flowed before the total defeat of Marlborough’s hopes and this proved
to be a decisive event in the outcome of the war. Using difficult to find sources, Nick Dorrell
gives the fullest details of the campaign, the armies involved, and the five main actions of the
campaign available. The book is a very useful source for anyone interested in this fascinating
period of military history
