The famous Battle of Blenheim (known on the Continent as the Second Battle of Höchstädt), during the war of the Spanish Succession, when the Allied army under Marlborough and Eugene of Savoy crushed a French-Bavarian army regarded as invincible. Nicholas Tindal (1687-1774), one-time Chaplain to Greenwich Hospital, first published a translation of Frenchman Paul de Rapin's 'History of England' in 1727, running to thirteen volumes; in 1732 it was enlarged with his own notes and maps. This map was published in 'A summary of Mr Rapin de Thoyras's History of England, and Mr Tindal's Continuation, from the Invasion of Julius Caesar, to the End of the Reign of King George I. Illustrated With Medals, Plans of Battles, Towns, and Sieges', 1751.
