After getting some encouraging words...
Part IV/1. - The condition before the Reorganization 1810
This phase of the Saxon Army was by far the most exiting one.
While on campaign four Officiers started independently, in almost the same words, to write to the Minister of War v. Bose.
They stated the problems and grievances of the Army in the Field, pointing out what troubles this old system gives them when compared with the french system.
This four men were deployed in different places:
Gen.Mjr. v. Gersdorff, Generalstaff Grand Duchy Warsaw
Gen.Mjr. v. Funk, Aid-de-Camp to the King
Gen.Mjr. v. Thielmann, ADC of Marechal Davout
Obst.(Colonnel) v. Langenau, ADC in the Imperial Headquarter
While the first three officers wrote on their own accord Col.v. Langenau had direct orders from the King to write about his experiences of the Campaign 1809. What he wrote only confirmed what the other three allready had pointed out and showed the need for sever reforms and reorganisation of the Army in its current condition. Soon after the arrivel of v. Langenau's report Gen.Adj. v. Gersdorff was ordered by the King to put together a proposal for the Reorganisation. Before the end of 1809 this proposal was ready. It was a Masterpiece of historical and Military-Science importance.
