The First Duke of Marlborough, John Churchill, had already cemented his reputation with a famous victory at Blenheim in 1704 but his rout of the French at Ramillies, near Brussels, was perhaps his most emphatic victory and a decisive blow in the War of Spanish Succession. This guide charts the build up to the action, profiles the major figures involved and provides a detailed analysis of how the battle was fought.
