As I am new to this era, I could use some guidance on Prussian organization for infantry, cavalry and artillery. I am not particular about the era. Is there a comprehensive book/treatise (something other than Osprey books) that could be read?

Also, any recommendations on uniform colors?

Treat with caution, and be aware that the site owner really doesn't like the Brits :0)

Check the Mont Saint Jean site. Has uniform plates for many of the 1815 Prussians.

He also makes rather free with illustrations, at least some of which very probably are still under copyright (unless he's purchased the originals and rights to certain Osprey illustrations, in which case I'll apologise)

"He also makes rather free with illustration"

At least one of the illustrations used is Keith Rocco's "Battle of Mockern 1813"

Some of them come from the Funcken books.

Here are some other good sites: link

You say your not picky about the era but really it means everything in napoleonics, especially for the prussians.

The prussian army of the 1st coalition was nothing like that of the sixth, both in uniform and style.

I guess I was saying if there is material out there that could provide good reference both 1806 and for later, I would be interested in it. Kind of like getting two for price of one (which in our hobby, I know never happens :>))

I just really want to sink my teeth into the reference material…

If you can find Nash's "the Prussian Army 1808-1815" get it.
