SMOOTHBORE ORDNANCE JOURNAL VOL 1

SMOOTHBORE ORDNANCE JOURNAL VOL 1
by Summerfield, Dr Stephen editor

1-195001

This new journal covers the artillery and military engineering from the 30 Years War to the Franco-Prussian War and includes six pages of color illustrations and many b/w illust/drawings.

The debut issue has two main themes: Horse Artillery from Contemporary Texts, and, Ordnance Texts in Context

Theme One - Horse Artillery from Contemporary Texts
The use of horse artillery still cause a great deal of debate even today. These translations and extracts from 18th and 19th century contemporary texts.

* Smola (1827) translated by Digby Smith compares the horse artillery of different countries to the Cavalry Artillery of Austria. [SOJ 1(01)

* Hoyer (1798) translated by Geert van Uythoven gives a historical context for the development of horse artillery.

* Rouvroy (1802) translated by Geert van Uythoven gives an important discussion of best uses of horse artillery.

Theme Two - Ordnance Texts in Context
When interpreting Ordnance Texts, the origin of the information and context that they were written is important. Often the information can be much older than it first appears.

* Captain Ralph Willet Adye RA wrote the first edition of his important primer in 1800 and eventually 8 editions were written. Half of the famous 1813 7th edition was compiled by Captain William Granville Eliot. By the time of the 1827 8th edition much of the information was obsolete. [SOJ 1 (02), SOJ 1 (04) and SOJ 1(R01)]

* Tousard (1809) The American Artillerist Companion is an important source of information on 18th century artillery and military engineering being based upon both English and French Texts. This is a reprint of the important article by Donald Graves by kind permission of the Journal of Canadian Arms Collecting.

* A collection of biographies of various important Austrian, French and Saxon Artillerymen.
