It is these results, owing from the struggle against Spain, which gives importance to the record of Eng lish military service in the Low Countries. Among those who became famous in the course of that mem orable enterprise, the names of Sir Francis and Sir Horace Vere stand foremost. The story of their lives covers the whole period of the war of indepen dence.
