Prussian Army Resources
With the imminent publication of my article in Wargames Illustrated about buiklding a late-Napoleonic Prussian wargames army, I thought it was about time I created a Prussian resources page to accompany the Saxon one that I’ve already done.
I full expect this page to grow and evolve over time, so let me know if you want to suggest and additions or improvements.
Knötel uniform plates
One of the best researched and most beautifully illustrated uniformology resources is the series of plates painted by the father-and-son Knötel team. Just search through the page for “Preußen”.
Freikorps and national cavalry
Knötel and Lezius Sturm cigarette cards
From an extensive German cigarette card collection of German uniforms created by Herbert Knötel and Martin Lezius.
[Lots more to follow!]
Jugel/Wolf 1813-17 Prussian uniform plates
I’ll add these in a future update to this page.
Prussian reserve infantry 1813-15
Written by Robert Mantle and published as a pamphlet for the Napoleonic Association in the late 1970s. This is a useful reference but should be treated with a little caution due to its age and also because the subject of the reserve infantry regiments is notoriously complex. The Napoleon Series site now hosts an online version of this work; here are links to each section:
I’ll add a list of useful books in a later update.
