Austrian army of WW1 Tuesday, 12/5/06, 8:25 AM
¿The soldier of this army was well armed with the Mannlicher rifle, Skoda machine guns and some of the most excellent artillery pieces in the world. Uniforms were relatively modern and followed closely to the German style of the time with the exception of the flamboyant Calvary regiments who insisted on starting the war in their garish 19th century costumes complete with braid and brass. The Austrian army however was lacking in modern communication and transport, having the fewest airplanes and motorized equipment of any of the 1914 armies. Austria-Hungary had 13 Flieger Kompagnie (Fliks) (flying companies), with a total of 48 operational aircraft, 85 pilots and observers, and ten balloons¿

Battle of Ménfõ 1044 Friday, 7/7/06, 7:44 AM
The usurpation of the Hungarian throne in the eleventh century by Samuel Aba meant a relapse from Feudalism to a tribal society. He was opposed by the Church, by the nobles, and later by the HRE Henry III, since Samuel did not keep all the points of their peace treaty. Ex-King Peter Orseolo, with the help of Henry, attacked Samuel, and defeated him in the battle of Ménfõ, near Gyõr. Samuel reached the Tisza river and was killed there by Hungarians who opposed him. He was buried in the monastery he founded at Abasár. His family, the Aba clan continued to be one of the most influential clans of Northern Hungary, where their name is preserved in the name of Abaúj county.

The Swiss Pikemen Tuesday, 7/12/05, 10:10 AM
Swiss mercenaries were the dominant force in European warfare for many years, following their defeat of Hapsburg and Burgundian knightly armies sent against them. They were finally defeated only by German Landsknechts employing similar tactics, and then by the novel Spanish "sword and buckler" men who crept beneath the pike wall.

The Second Battle of Zurich 1799 Thursday, 6/9/05, 9:57 AM
Huge downloadable map at http://www.demisoldepress.com/images/map023.jpg 25th and 26th of September 1799, Marshal Massena, having forced the passage of the Limmat, attacked and defeated the Russians and their Austrian coalition allies. The coalition forces greatly outnumbered the French, so Suvarov sent more than half his force of around 60,000 men to cut off the French line of retreat. After sending a small force to harass Suvorov's armys progress from Italy through the St Gotthard Pass, Massena turned on the Russian coalition army under General Alexander Korsakov, which he defeated, capturing their cannons and other supplies and inflicting about 8,000 casualties. Most of the fighting took place on both banks of the river Limmat . Oudinot commanded the French forces on the right bank and general Mortier those on the left. At the same time General Soult attacked and defeated the Austrians on the river Linth, (the main tributary of Lake Zurich) under Field Marshal Baron Hotze, who was killed early in the day. Massena then rounded on Suvarov with a brilliant offensive operation and drove his army away; killing, wounding and capturing almost 14,000 Russians. The result of this battle was the strengthening of Swiss independence, and the saving of France from an imminent invasion when Russia withdrew from the Second Coalition.
