  • Illustrated History of Bayonet Drills

    Just ran across this site; it gives an illustrated history of bayonet drills by various militaries. Timeframe covered is from 1805 through modern-day:

    Interesting stuff!

        Excellent resource...Where's my floor mop...I need to practice a few of those. Anyway, I have always felt terrible about Russian soldiers having to carry those enormously long Mosin rifles with a spike bayonet but the illustrations clearly show that in hand to hand combat the guy with the longest rifle will probably win. Also, he will be most likely to defeat a cavalryman and literally knock him off the saddle.
