New Prussian resources page
Posted by Martin on August 1, 2009
The eagle-eyed among you might notice that a new link has appeared in the menu above. Yep, I’ve finally got round to adding a Prussian Army Resources page to complement the Saxon one I’ve already done. There are several reasons for this. Firstly, it doesn’t make sense to have a Saxon one and not have a Prussian one; secondly, it’s easier to find and maintain if there’s one page; thirdly, the Saxon page has proved to be consistently one of the most viewed parts of the site, so a Prussian page seems as though it would be something popular.
But those reasons apply at almost any time. The spur for doing it now is that my Wargames Illustrated article will be published soon and it would be embarrassing if there wasn’t a Prussian resources page to accompany it on BfK. So I’ve decided to get started now to give me sufficient time to have it up to scratch. So far I’ve concentrated on adding the Knötel plates and that’s made me realise just how much material there is to get through. There were only 13 Knötel plates for the Saxons but I uploaded 49 for the Prussians this morning and I’ve a worrying feeling that I might have forgotten some!
Anyway, that was enough work for one go along with links to the Napoleonic Association’s pamphlet about the reserve infantry regiments. I’ll save adding further resources like the Knötel cigarette cards, the Jugel/Wolf plates and a list of books for future updates. If you can think of any other items that should be included, feel free to add a comment.
