The author was a witness to the events of this war, being a minister accompanying a regiment that fought in it. This is his account, from a very British perspective, of the 1693 campaign, which ended in the battle of Landen (also called Neerwinden), where the Anglo-Allied Army was savaged by the French, and the siege of Charleroi. It has been supplemented with a second account of the battle, written by the French and translated by an Englishman, and a translation of the letter referenced in the basic work, sent by the King of France to Notre Dame for the celebrations of the great French victory.
