Tactical masterpiece... 3. November 2014
Von D.S.Thurlow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, is generally counted as one of Britain's great captains of warfare, along with the Duke of Wellington. Marlborough is perhaps best known for his victory at Blenheim in 1704. This Osprey Campaign Series entry highlights another of his victories, Ramillies in 1706. At Ramillies, Marlborough's allied army defeated a significant French army of Louis XIV, thanks to the Duke's superb tactical sense and a little luck.

Authored by Michael McNally with illustrations by Sean OBrogain, "Ramillies 1706" provides a brief introduction to the War of the Spanish Succession and to the challenges of campaigning on the European Continent in the 18th Century. The format includes the standard set-up of opposing commanders, forces, and plans. The narrative of the battle itself is a little challenging to follow but very worthwhile, not least for how it highlights Marlborough's ability to adjust his battle plan as the fighting progressed. The text is nicely supported by a good selection of maps, diagrams of the battleground, photographs, and illustrations. Recommended as an introduction to one of the Duke of Marlborough's great victories.

Great When a Plan Comes Together 10. März 2015
Von R. A Forczyk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The War of the Spanish Succession usually doesn’t ring a bell for most readers, but Louis XIV is still pretty well known. In Ramillies 1706, Michael McNally gives us a succinct overview of one of the major French defeats in that war, where the English Duke of Marlborough led a Dutch-British-German coalition army to defeat an equally mixed French-Bavarian army in southeastern Belgium. Marlborough had already racked up a reputation at Blenheim two years earlier, and Ramillies further cemented him in the annals of great generals. Overall, Ramillies 1706 in a fine addition to the series – well-written and colorful, although not always full of military insight or pertinent facts. For example, although French casualties are detailed, there is no mention of Anglo-Dutch casualties, though they must have been substantial. Nor could I really get a feel for the musket and pike tactics being employed. The battle narrative is essentially presented as: Marlborough conceives a fine operational plan, Marlborough’s plans undermined by allies, Marlborough pushes on anyway and the French oblige by offering battle when they needn’t have, Marlborough plans a tactical masterpiece and then – with a few hiccups – executes it and routs the French. I do find this method a bit too accepting of “Marlborough the military genius” and not enough dissection of his command decisions or methods.

Marlborough wanted to fix the French left and center at Ramillies, then flank them on the right with his cavalry. When the French also put their cavalry on their right, the result was a large, protracted cavalry battle that only slowly swung toward Marlborough’s favor. Frankly, I can’t see anything terribly brilliant in a flanking movement and the result was in doubt for some time. I’m not sure that Marlborough had a “Plan B” in case his flanking move didn’t work out. The author does not put much effort into describing artillery in the battle, but he does mention that Marlborough had a significant superiority in this arm; given this, a longer artillery bombardment of the French cavalry might have broken them up and opened the way for the intended flanking movement.

At the tactical level, fairly minor water obstacles – some little more than drainage ditches – played a large role in disrupting movement and formations. The French chose to defend behind a minor water obstacle, but it was unclear to me why Marlborough tried to move troops across some of these obstacles (which caused some disruption). Of course, the French commander lost the battle through poor decisions and Marlborough mounted a vigorous pursuit that routed the French field army and overran most of Belgium. All of this redounded to Marlborough’s credit as an aggressive general, but the narrative seems to induce an air of inevitability that may be influenced by hindsight. Napoleon later commented that luck was an important part of generalship and Ramillies is a good case study where a plan came together as intended.
