Drawn up on the orders of the great Duke himself, to determine those eligible for bounty money paid by Queen Anne awarded to all officers who took part, the Blenheim Roll is the comprehensive list of the forces which together with the army of Prince Eugene of Savoy, won the great victory over the French and Bavarian armies in 1704. The original roll is preserved in the National Archives at Kew, but this is a faithful reproduction and comes complete with explanatory notes by the editor, military historian Charles Dalton. The roll gives an unsurpassed picture of the structure and organisation of an early 18th-century army, and the portrait is filled out by the editor’s brief biographical notes.
