Welcome to Clash of Steel

Featured battle : Boyne

Part of Jacobite Rebellions

Date : 11 July 1690

William's force outnumbered James's by 36,000 to 26,000. James, in retreat, made a stand on the Boyne. William sent a flanking force to cross upstream while his main force attacked across the river at Oldbridge. James's over reacted to the flank attack sending too many of his best troops to meet it. His centre was not strong enough to resist Williams troops and after some hard fighting it broke.

Waterloo Archive Volume IV: British Sources

Gareth Glover [Ed]
Another superb collection of original material not only from front line troops but also from reserve and support services. See review of Volume VI for an overview of the series.
