Alfie: i think your a legend, apple pike
05:11 Mon 29th Nov


Im very interested in military technology from 1300AD (100 years war) through the medieval period until 1500AD with the evoloution of plate armour. Then from 1790AD through the napoleonic wars and Crimean wars (when cavalvry was still being used to charge cannons) until the 1880AD (Zulu war).

There are a few exceptions to the above the mongol bow and their training/tactics were amazing the bow has a higher draw weight than an english yew longbow and they were such skilled horsemen that they could release the arrows when all four of the horses feet were off the ground so that nothing would interfear with the aiming. There are also certain bits of world war 2 I like to read about mainly the battle of britian and the special operations executive.
