FEATURED UNIT!

Napoleonic Austrian German Musketeer Battalion 1806 - 1815

( UAN37 )

Since late in 1809 each of the German Infantry Regiments had been reduced to two battalions each of six companies.

The Shako was authorised in August 1806 although its actual issue was delayed until the previous issues of helmets were due for replacement. Thus the helmet and shako were worn together for meny years until at least the end of 1809.

On balance the Austrian infantry acquitted itself well - better than might have been expected, given the inherent conservatiom of the hierarchy, which failed to appreciate or implement needed modernisation. Under these strictures the Austrian army had to fight the most modern army in Europe.
