The Nine Years' War and the British Army 1688 97: The Operations in the Low Countries

The Nine Years' War and the British Army 1688 97: The Operations in the Low Countries Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Between 1689 and 1697 the British army fought as a member of the Grand Alliance against Louis XIV. Despite the military and political significance of the European conflict, this book is the first historical investigation for over a century dealing with the operations of the principal campaigns in the Low Countries.

John Childs begins his comprehensive study by exploring the diplomatic origins of the Nine Years' War. Leading on from this political background, the author then focuses on the detailed organisation of the British, Dutch and other allied armies and the conduct of the operations. The specific campaigns are also examined and in particular the author looks at the strategic and tactical role played by the British.

This campaign and operational study of the British army will be of interest to both specialist and general military historians, as well as to political historians.

About the Author

John Childs is Emeritus Professor of Military History at the University of Leeds.
