SMOOTHBORE ORDNANCE JOURNAL VOL 5

SMOOTHBORE ORDNANCE JOURNAL VOL 5
by Summerfield, Dr Stephen editor

1-195005

This volume is a special Waterloo issue. In general, SOJ covers 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.

Articles include: Waterloo Artillery
* Lt-Col Townend RA gives an informative introduction to the Artillery at Waterloo.
* Waterloo is one of the most written about battles but the role of the artillery is still poorly understood and controversial. Much of this revolves the letter written by the Duke of Wellington on 21 December 1815 that accused the Royal Artillery of cowardice and despite the evidence is repeated even in books published recently.
* David Wright revisits the Tactical Deployment of the Royal Horse Artillery at Waterloo as described by Maj-Gen BP Hughes.
* Stephen Summerfield gives an overview of The Board of Ordnance and Army Supply in 1815 and British Artillery at Waterloo.
* Erwin Muilwijk gives details upon the Netherlands Artillery at Waterloo.

Horse Artillery [Part 2]
* This carries on the discussion of the role of horse artillery with papers by Hume upon the Classification of Artillery.
* Digby Smith translated Scharnhorst's comments upon Horse Artillery.
* Stephen Summerfield explores Towards Tactical Mobility and Napoleonic Horse Artillery.
* Anthony Dawson and Stephen Summerfield demonstrate that the Origins of British Horse Artillery pre-dates 1793 when it received the Royal Warrant.

Prussian Artillery of Napoleonic Wars
* Digby Smith continues his translation of the Geschichte der Brandenburg Preussischen Artillery [History of the Prussian Artillery] by Milnowsky and Bonin (1841).

French Gribeauval and AnXI Cannon (1791-1828)
* Stephen Summerfield gives a chronology for French cannon over the period of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars.
* The Notes on Artillery dictated by Napoleon translated by F.E.B. Laws justifies replacing of the Gribeauval System by the AnXI System.
