Featured battle : Schwyz

Part of The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars

Date : 14 August 1799

The casualty figures given are suspect as they are derived from purely French sources. The attack was in part amphibious by eight grenadier companiesacross the Urnersee landing at Brunnen.

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.
