Welcome to Clash of Steel
Featured battle : Würzburg
Part of The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars
Date : 03 September 1796
The total forces available to both sides were about equal but only part of each force was engaged. Determined attacks by the Austrians and the rapid follow up of any advantage gained turned the French right flank. Continued pressure during the French withdrawal forced Jourdan away from other French forces he could have combined with.

Waterloo Archive Volume V: British Sources
Gareth Glover [Ed]
Another superb book in this series. This one has tapped a very rich seam of material hitherto inaccessible to anyone unable to read German. Though the whole book is most interesting Appendix 2 in particular appealed to me. It records some of the 'Glorious Feats' performed by men of the KGL and Hanoverian Army. There are also some excellent reproductions of original illustrations of uniforms and 'battle' scenes. See review of Volume VI for comment on the whole series.
