How many regiments had them, I don't know. Since the infantry in the flying column that fought at Lesenja were mounted while on the ma...

Re: Scandanavia 1655-1680?

Warfare 9YW figures will be fine for both sides of the Scanian War. I will have to dig it out of my library, but there is an illustrated book on Swedish uniforms and flags of the Scanian War that has just about everything you need. The Swedish Army Museum's trophy collection has color photos of doze...

There is a memorial stone on the German/Belgian border where the 277 VGD hit the 3rd battalion of the of the 393 US Infantry Regiment, 99th US Infantry Divis...
