Welcome to Clash of Steel

Featured battle : Castlebar

Part of The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars

Date : 27 August 1798

This was the first contact made by the French after their landing. The Anglo-Irish defenders were for the most part local militia. Apart from the company of the 6th Foot, the Artillery men and Roden's Fencible Dragoons the British panicked and fled. An easy first victory for what was a small French force.
