    The country was highly affected after the war. The soldiers burnt the villages near Blenheim and no one was spared, not even a childing mother nor a new-born baby. It was a massacre. The aftermath of the massacre is described by saying that it was a shocking sight. Dead bodies were not even proper burial but were left out in the poem, rotting in the sun. The common people during that time suffered immensely, without having anything to do with the war, directly or indirectly.
