Graham Bosworth

Graham was born in Coventry in 1944 in the heart of the motor industry and grew up with a passionate interest in the motor car and motor sport. He clearly remembers the sight and sound of C and D Type Jaguars being road-tested past his childhood home and has vivid memories of first visits to Silverstone in the mid fifties. After leaving school Graham trained as a Technical Illustrator at the Coventry College of Art then joined one of the city's leading illustration and design studios. He was engaged in all forms of line and airbrush exploded and cutaway drawings and worked on a varied number of contracts including motor cars and commercial vehicles, aircraft and machine tools. After nine years, he went into partnership and formed Baron-Bosworth Publications, an art and design studio.

This unconventional use of Infantry against cavalry, the French force confused and suffering losses broke.
