Prussia. A state attached to an army. Since the mid XVIII century the prussian war machine, carefully taken care of by Frederick the Great has become an example for other countries. But as the old Fritz became older and older, the same thing happened with his army.
At first sight everything remained intact. The troops were well drilled as always, an ordinary soldier afraid more of his officers rather than enemies. However the world went forward, and in 1806, Jena-Auerstaedt happened.
I hate everything about this pic...
Hands up who's fed up with my napoleonic stuff!: D
