      The book was officially presented to John Spencer-Churchill, the 11th Duke of Marlborough, at Blenheim Palace on that date. For the first time, the book - which tracks Marlborough's life story from impoverished youth to wealthy Duke - reveals that despite all previously exaggerated accounts, Marlborough in fact played a minimal role in siege. In the first volume of an ambitious and stunningly-written four-volume biography, Sir Winston Churchill discusses the early career and stratospheric rise to fortune of his illustrious ancestor. John Churchill, the Duke of Marlborough, may have been eclipsed in history by his more well-known descendant.
