Its their way of saying hello!Or so says a very nice brochure about Wurttemberg which I chanced upon today. I was looking for some amusing anecdotes about the place or perhaps some famous Wurttembergers. If there are any, they are keeping their heads down. Prosperous, industrious and very attractive. A very middle class south German state which is very difficult to take the mick out of. Honest!
- 1803-06 3rd Coalition: With the French against Austria, Russia and Britain
- 1806-07 4th Coalition: With the French against Prussia, Russia and Britain
- 1809 5th Coalition: With France against Austria and Britain
- 1812-14 6th Coalition: With France against everyone and then, from 1813, with the good guys against France.
The good thing about these types of armies is that they were so small (12,000 odd for the Wurttemberg contribution to the Confederation of the Rhine) that you can get a real feel for the force within the eight unit limit set for Neil Thomas's Napoleonic armies. My list and my initial view of the paint scheme is here.
