Featured battle : Geisling

Part of The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars

Date : 17 April 1809

A tiny engagement but typical of the actions of the Austrian 'Streifkorps' raiding and disrupting the French lines of communication. This kind of action caused many French troops to be 'wasted' in guarding supplies in transit.

Secret Flotillas Vol 1 - Clandestine Sea Operations to Brittany 1940-44

Richards, Sir Brook
A fascinating insight into small-boat operations between the British south coast and northern France. This volume covers Breton fishing boats as well as naval motor gun boats and the missions they ran to insert agents, collect/deliver intelligence and pick up down'ed aircrew smuggled to the coast by the resistance. Full of detailed references and anecdotes which begin to give some idea of how information was learned the hard way. Particularly relevant, as the author was himself involved.
