Discovery was built for Captain Scott’s first Antarctic

This book tells the thrilling story of that eventful career.

The Peninsular Collection, 95th Rifles, 1800 to Corunna

KB0159

The first German forces serving in America began to adopt rifles and to exchange the Red and white uniforms, typical in the British Army. This made them more effective against the irregular American revolutionary soldiers. The standard musket used through the British Army and aboard ship was a relatively short-range weapon. The lose-fitting lead ball fired by the musket bounced down the barrel and spat out of the muzzle in a random manner. That was not a significant problem when armies formed lines or squares and fired over distances of less than 100 metres at similar formations that presented large targets. This was not greatly different from hitting a barn when inside with the doors closed.

German Army In Normandy, 1st Leibstandarte, Adolf Hitler SS Panzer Division

KB0158

This DVD should be watched alongside the DVD from BHTV covering the Medieval Crecy campaign where there are important similarities between the battles of 1944 and 1346, as there are also between the latter stages of the Crecy campaign with the campaigns of Marlborough and Wellington and the actions in the Low Countries during WWI and WWII. The BHTV approach to military history highlights the similarities down the ages, introduced by terrain. The importance of logisitics is also remarkably similar. From Crecy to Waterloo, it was shipping and landing, fodder for the horses, food, ammunition and equipment. In 1944, main change was that petrol and diesel replaced hay in feeding the mechanised motive forces.

The resulting DVD is very watchable, the re-enactment and specially commissioned maps providing a vivid picture of life in the 14th Century. The presenters add the authenticity of people with military experience who are also closely engaged in the research and scripting that make this a memorable historical military documentary
