The third volume of the Nobel Prize winner's hailed biography of John Churchill covers his military leadership in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. John Churchill, first Duke of Marlborough, was an accomplished military leader who never lost a battle. This is the third volume in Winston S. Churchill's sweeping, four-part biography of his illustrious ancestor, in which he recounts Marlborough's military successes in thrilling detail—including his support of William of Orange in the Glorious Revolution, his crucial role in the suppression of the Duke of Monmouth's rebellion, and his success in negotiating England's diplomatic position in the War of the Spanish Succession. With characteristic flair, Winston S. Churchill brings his ancestor's campaigns, intrigues, and personal relationships to life—and restores him to a prominent place in English history. "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
