Juiest to maim Battles it la interesting to note the Altera which have taken place in the methods of warfare even when they do not include such Radical that caused by the invention of gun powder. No bahts like its predecessor and there were notable changes in the form of attack and defense even where so much depended upon person Al valor and discipline and where there were so few essential changes in the form of weapons As in the Long history of tiie bout i conquests. In our own Day the form of a gating very essentially with armies not in quite such a marked degree As with navies. La the Napoleonic wars there is meation of Field Foni cations or earthworks for an army actually engaged in a Campaign. Battles were won by the massing of artillery by cavalry and infantry charges and both Souba Tanu mane Vered in open. Field without thought of improvising Protection by the Spade. Battles Are hardly More fought in that manner now than with lances and for weapons. Theold Mozzle loading Musket made it possible that there should be in Cess Ful charges in which a vast column of men could be hurled on a line and break its Bead was destroyed by one Volley or even two. It is not so since the Breech loader has come into me.

Cost of the russians in the attacks upon Plevna. Gen. Skobeloff in one instance rushed Forward three supporting col Ems to the first charging body and tie last Only carried the line into the re doubt which he was afterwards compelled to evacuate. Since the american War the Spade also has become appreciated and has altered the condition of. And fighting almost As much As the use of Armor in naval engagements. It fives an immense advantage to the de pensive.
