Welcome to Clash of Steel

Featured battle : Valencia

Part of The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars

Date : 03 November 1811 - 09 January 1812

The Spanish defence of this important port city was sloppy, the generalship of Blake was a disgrace. With superior number of men and over 370 guns and with the facility of being replenished by sea the Spanish should never have lost this city. The majority of the Spaniards were taken prisoner.

Lockheed SR-71 Owners Workshop Manual

Davies, Steve & Crickmore, Paul
An excellent book on one of the world's greatest aircraft! It follows in Haynes tradition of 'manual' style books on equipment we'd love to own with fascinating detail gained from people who were intimately involved with the Blackbird, or 'Habu' as it was known amongst those who flew it. As well as detail of its genesis, history and missions there is plenty of detail on equipment, engines and of particular interest to myself, what it was like to actually fly one. The book includes a full list of the fate of each aircraft and a glossary of terms used. Full of photographs, diagrams and detail but still very readable. Highly recommended.
Haynes, 2012
