This medal was executed at Nuremberg and is deservedly complimentary to Marlborough. He rescued Germany from a very perilous situation. The first-fruits of his adventurous expedition were Schellenberg and Donauwerth. These were followed by Blenheim or Hochstädt as this memorable battle is sometimes called.
