Welcome to Clash of Steel


Featured battle : Mortimer's Cross

Part of War of the Roses

Date : 02 February 1461

The Yorkist army under Edward, Earl of March, deployed his army in a blocking position to prevent a Lancastrian force under the Earls of Pembroke and Wiltshire linking up with Queen Margaret's army. The Yorkist force outnumbered the Lancastrians, who were poorly led, and the battle was won when the Lancastrian centre collapsed. Yorkist losses were light but the Lancastrians lost over 3000 men in the battle and pursuit.

Featured review :

British Aircraft Carriers

David Hobbs
A wealth of knowledge presented in a most readable form for everyone from the novice to the initiated. Encyclopedic in scope it may be dipped into at any point but I found in reading cover to cover the fascinating story went from airships to future carriers. All aspects, design, development and service are dealt with. There are very many photographs, lots from the author's own collection, plus drawings and plans. An unusual but welcome feature are the fold out copies of Admiralty drawings which are in the middle of the book.
At £45 this is not a cheap book, but a Rolls Royce is not a cheap car, and this is a Rolls Royce of a book.
