The Great Marlborough and His Duchess.
"The Dramatic Story of John Churchill, First Duke of Marlborough, and his Wife Sarah, Whose Lives and Marriage Spanned almost a Century of England's Growing Might - a time of Love, War, and Splendor." This is a great story, well told. Churchill [1650-1744] rose to become the greatest of English generals, and was responsible for ending France's 300-year domination of Europe. As military genius and renowned statesman, he paved the way for the establishment of the British Empire. His wife Sarah Jennings wielded influence with Queen Anne. Their story is one of intrigue, rebellion, war, and treason. With this family history, no wonder Winston felt the weight of England's fate so deeply. MacMillan, 1983. Hb, Dj. USED. $10.00
