⁂ The Siege of Bouchain (9 August - 12 September 1711) , was a siege in the War of the Spanish Succession, and the last major victory of John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough (1650-1722). Marlborough broke through the French defensive lines without losing a man to enemy action, and took Bouchain after a siege of 34 days. Its capture left Cambrai the only French-held fortress between the allied army and Paris.
