The War of Spanish Succession - 13 - 1708 Part 1

Postby Andy Tumath » April 16th, 2013, 12:37 pm

After the disappointments of 1707, the Allies continue to face significant problems. In England a rift between the Queen’s chief ministers threatens to paralyse government, and rumours of that most feared of things – French invasion – make their way across the Channel. On the continent, the Habsburg party in Spain deceives itself with fanciful hopes, while the little resemblance to each other of German words & deeds delays Marlborough’s preparations for the campaign. But there is some good news – love is in the air, and bachelor King Carlos III bags himself a queen.
