The War of Spanish Succession is well known in English concerning Flanders and Germany, not that much concerning Spain, not at all about Italy. Italian front was so important that the French considered it as important as the German one, and committed there their best generals. William III considered it to be far more important than Spain, and, in spite of having no British army there, after King William’s death London committed to it 1/10 of her war expense.

It was considered so important in Vienna that the Emperor sent there his best general. Last, it was the front where all the French hopes to submit Europe died in Turin in 1706 after the first dramatic wound they suffered in Blenheim in 1704.
