  Topic Description
Posted by: mdaniels Further to my previous post, and done separately to stop that post being very long, here are a few further possibilities that wouldn't have been considered obscure once upon a time but might be in the current climate: 1) The Dunes 1658: Turenne's most famous victory. It had British involvement and involved a neat tactical coup of waiting until the tide went out to charge a now open flank. It was also arguably the belated last act in the Ducth wars of Independence, the Thirt Year's war, The Fronde and the British Civil Wars - not bad for a single battle! 2) Neerwinden 1693 - a sanguinary battle which was the closest Marshall Luxembourg ever came to defeat in open battle (though he won in the end). One selling point is that the losing side were led by William of Orange who was by then also William 3rd of England. I also meant to include Killiecrankie 1689 in my previous post - it was a Scottish battle and has been suggested before.

All previous proposals of mine to my editor - Would say that on the way to Ramillies we went over Landen-Neerwinden (it's not two names for the same place, as I often thought, but two separate villages) and the principal part of the battlefield is a flat area with a massive factory complex on top of it, so anyone wanting location photography would be disappointed.
