Moments in Time #2: The Battle of Blenheim

Today is the 309th anniversary of the Battle of Blenheim, a true strategic masterpiece. The Duke of Marlborough (profiled here) and Prince Eugene of Savoy showed the world the spectacular result that two men, determined to fulfill their goals, and acting in full trust and confidence could achieve, even when the odds appeared to be against them. Let us also remember all of those that fought bravely in an all-too-often forgotten war. Pictured below is a part of the tapestry of the battle as seen in Blenheim Palace- named for the triumph and to this day the seat of the Dukes of Marlborough.

I am also working on a video about this battle. I'll link it on this page when I get it out.
