  • Prussian Line Infantry 1792-1815by Peter Hofschroer; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    At the beginning of this period, the battalions of the Prussian Line usually fought in a linear formation three ranks deep, overwhelming the enemy with fire before a well-timed bayonet attack. By the end, the preferred formation was eight to 12 ranks deep. The responsibility for conducting the fire-fight was now given to the skirmish elements and the... more...

  • Prussian Light Infantry 1792-1815by Peter Hofschroer; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    The Prussian light infantry branch was founded in the reign of Frederick the Great (1740-1786) and continued to develop from then onwards. It was the light troops of the Austrian army, the Croatian border soldiers, which so impressed Frederick in the Seven Years' War (1756-1763) that he considered it necessary to create an effective counter-force.... more...

  • The Hanoverian Army of the Napoleonic Warsby Peter Hofschroer; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    Of all the armies of the German States, that of Hanover remains of greatest interest to the British reader due to the close links between the crowns of the two states. Throughout the Napoleonic era Britain and Hanover had the same head of state, George III. Symbolic of their close relationship, the Hanoverian Army wore uniforms and used equipment largely... more...

  • Prussian Reserve, Militia & Irregular Troops 1806-15by Peter Hofschroer; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    Irregular, semi-regular and reserve formations comprised a substantial part of the armed forces at the disposal of the Prussian Army throughout the Napoleonic Wars, particularly during the campaigns of the Wars of Liberation, 1813-15. The scale of the uprising of 1813 required the mobilization of all available forces and the utilization of all available... more...

  • Prussian Cavalry of the Napoleonic Wars (2)by Peter Hofschroer; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    After Prussia's dismemberment a drastic re-organisation of the entire army was necessary, and the cavalry underwent this process with the rest. At the time of the mobilisation in 1813, the somewhat reduced mounted arm was supplemented by voluntary and militia formations; and once peace was established after the First Abdication, a further re-organisation... more...

  • Prussian Cavalry of the Napoleonic Wars (1)by Peter Hofschroer; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    When Frederick II (later known as Frederick the Great) came to the throne in 1740, he had three advantages for which he owed thanks to his father: a modern, well-organised state; full coffers; and a properly trained and equipped army. Under a leader as renowned as Seydlitz, the Prussian cavalry achieved the nearest to a state of perfection that it... more...

  • Austrian Specialist Troops of the Napoleonic Warsby Philip Haythornthwaite; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    The specialist troops of the Austrian forces helped to secure Austria's reputation as the most formidable of Napoleon's continental enemies. Due largely to the efforts of Prince Liechtenstein, by the late 18th century the Austrian artillery had been the finest in Europe, and was held up as an example to the world. This text examines the famed Austrian... more...

  • Frederick the Great's Army (1)by Philip Haythornthwaite; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    The Prussian army of King Frederick II, 'the Great', became so renowned as a result of its campaigns, principally during the Seven Years' War (1756-1763), that it was regarded as a model for many of the other armies of Europe. In this first of two volumes exploring Frederick the Great's splendid army, Philip Haythornwaite examines the organization,... more...

  • Frederick the Great's Army (2)by Philip Haythornthwaite; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    Throughout the wars undertaken by Frederick the Great, probably his greatest resource was his infantry. It is a mark of the king's determination that despite wars which almost destroyed both Prussia and its army (such as the Seven Years' War), he was able to maintain its numbers – even if the quality declined as the attritional campaigns took... more...

  • Frederick the Great's Army (3)by Philip Haythornthwaite; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    Frederick the Great was not renowned as a great artillery enthusiast, however he did recognise the importance of artillery and greatly expanded the arm. Frederick was also aware of the value of strong fortifications as barriers against the manoeuvres of enemy armies, and as places of security for troops and magazines; some of these were of vital significance... more...
