Welcome to Clash of Steel

Featured battle : Condé

Part of The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars

Date : 29 August 1794

The same French force which had taken Valenciennes two days previously had another easy victory at Condé. Losses on both sides were extremely light and the Austrians went back to Austria on the condition that they would not fight against France for one year.

The Very Thing

Jonathan Crook
The title neatly sums up my opinion of this book it is the very thing for anyone with a keen interest in Napoleonic soldiering. Part of the long military history of the Royal Welch Fusiliers is told through the memoirs of Drummer Richard Bentinck from 1807 to 1823. The story travels from Copenhagen to North America to the Peninsular and finally to Waterloo and the occupation of France. We get a fascinating insight into the life of the ordinary British soldier not all saint and not all sinner
A thoroughly good read which I cannot recommend too highly.
