The allies having resolved to attack Mons, were compelled to pass the strong lines which Villars had formed from that city to the Sambre. Marlborough, with his usual skillful maneuvering and rapid marches deceived Villars, passed the lines and invested the place. Villars resolved to risk a battle for its protection and to penetrate through the woods of Raisnieres and Lanieres, but was surprised to see Marlborough drawn up on the other side and ready to oppose him. Whilst Marlborough entrenched himself and after a very sanguinary battle, in which he himself was wounded, his army retreated in a very masterly manner under the direction of Boufflers. The right of the French, where the attack was commenced, was drawn up on the plain of Malplaquet, where the battle usually takes its name.
