The Lace Wars: Prussian Commands and Positions

My good friend, Bernd Fischer, kindly gave me an interesting book recently entitled:

"Die Kriege Friedrichs II"

This was published in communist Berlin in 1981. The front and rear plates contained some excellent images of the various positions taken by an infantryman of the 18th Century, most probably from the years prior to the War of the Austrian Succession.

Black Hussar Miniatures has tried to follow these positions in its recent SYW range as has Crann Tara Miniatures with its Wars of the Austrian Succession and Jacobite figures.
