Forgive me if I have got my history wrong but they seem to have got the term "British" mixed up. Post 1707 (or even 1603), I don't really have a problem but the battles of the Hundred Years War appear to me to be "English" battles. On this front, I am not sure the Battle of Hastings counts or the Spanish Armada. If they are going to include battles that far back in time which I have no problem with but they probably need to include the Anglo-Scottish battles, ie Bannockburn, Solway Moss and Pinkie Cleugh to name but a few -- sorry but I have just finished reading Dunnett.

Stuff like that just goes over the head of this Yank I'm sorry to say. I haven't really spent much time on the site either. I found the site whilst googling images for the Afgan wars and that's all I've looked at so far. Really great for seeing what the uniforms/clothing, etc were for whatever period I'm currently reading on.
