Welcome to Clash of Steel!

Featured battle : Valmy

Part of The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars

Date : 20 September 1792

Interference by the King of Prussia caused his army commander to misdirect the battle. Faced with a numerically superior force the Prussians withdrew. The Austrian corps did not reach the battlefield, neither did the French corps under the Prince de Bourbon. Losses were slight on both sides but the allied invasion of France was over.

Boeing B52 Stratofortress, Owners Workshop Manual

Davies, Steve
Another excellent Haynes manual of one of those iconic pieces of technology we wish we could own! Detailed sections on it's design and combat history (primarily covering Vietnam and Iraq), it's anatomy, systems, engines and maintenance schedules. Some really detailed and annotated diagrams and the usual crop of photos from all angles. It also has a blow-by-blow account of a training mission from the point of view of the pilot, along with an unusual viewpoint from an air-gunner.
