gold star Redux: The Best TMP Napoleonic Related Information threads.no star

As I've reinvested heavily in the hobby lately, I discovered myself that not only the text of real books published but also internet has enhanced access to myriads of 19thC books that have been coming out of copyright and therefore being scanned and made available by international museums and societies.

This thread is intended to create an up-to-date index of articles that, solely IMHO, have provided sufficient ‘factual' information [at the time published] on TMP by serial and serious ‘experts' and amateur historians alike. It is not likely to be comprehensive, but is selective for interest and what appears as clarification on topics (not necessarily accuracy as expected).

Sometimes the information from relatively ‘modern' late 20thC publications (such as I also own) have been recitation of earlier work, simply because there was no counter-point or depth of information available. In some cases we are correcting this as we go. Note that many older links [URLs] within the threads no longer work to the site/ blog/ item intended, a good reason for multiple posts to catch up.

It is gratifying to see so much knowledge and concentration on improving our understanding of the Napoleonic and related eras (the precursor French Revolutionary wars etc.)

I'll be posting an updated and edited "Contemporary (1790-1820) British army and volunteer pictures"very soon. I'll also be posting similar pertaining the Cavalry, Volunteers (infantry/Cavalry), and the Indian army. I have some post-1820 contemporary pictures to post, and I will also be posting my take on British Regimental and king's colours too. But all these others are weeks away from completion but I hope to have posted them all and perhaps even more, by the end of January.

I'll be posting an updated version of my Regimental schematic charts as evidence shows that much of what has been used as evidence in countless uniform books is taken from Hamilton-Smith's schematics charts, which has been used as the font of all reference. Unfortunately, there are many mistakes which 'in general', are lace and button spacings. Even J N & B Pearse's 'partial complete', Army contractor's uniform design book may not be as accurate as one thinks.

P.S Please excuse the rambling and slight incoherence etc, of this post, as I've been up all night with one of my well-known banging Migraines.

[Added 22_Jan21]

Back on matters Austrian again, in particular Grenz [I dislike the addition of ‘ers']. This thread started with a few as well! [^Top].

I note here, the arguments for/ against in debates almost universally ignore the fact that Grenz, like Cossacks, were a 'community on-call' force, for both 'national' and local service (ie frontiersmen).
Those that were ‘enrolled' one period weren't necessarily the same who appeared the next time/ period. Whilst ‘titles' remained, the manpower circulated to some degree.

von Winterfeldt21 Jan 2021 10:41 p.m. PST

Grenzer would be the right term, why don't you use it, Grenz – what is this?

Grenzer is derived from the word Grenze which means border.

in case you refuse to use any non English name, use border.

Personal logo SHaT1984 Supporting Member of TMP22 Jan 2021 1:33 a.m. PST

Thanks for correcting me- too much 'English' has degenerated into vogue-speak that 'ers' annoy me- but if correct in this case, that's ok.
Took me months to understand what a 'presser' was; apart from a laundry/ dry-cleaner process; when I found the US use it instead of "press conference". Lousy, stupid, ascetic journalism.
Thanks again

Gunther Rothenberg, who is still an, if not 'the', authority on the Austrian army of the period uses both terms: 'Grenz' and Grenzer.'

See Napoleon's Great Adversary: Archduke Charles and the Austrian Army 1792-1814, 32:

While looking for information on one subject, other stuff creeps in. Of interest in the modelling community, that continues to this day… that is re-discovering old moulds and ‘reassigning' packs etc.

Just to add 'clarity' to some topics, I've put against the title the year of posting, so you have relative lineage of some.

191- What shook up the Wargames Foundry beehive? [2pp and two years of comments.]

Meanwhile, back on the ‘Russians', a mixture of additional details on units, organisations as if there wasn't enough (a little repetition to be expected within) and further clarification on 'skirmishing'… some real b___slapping happens again. Reader beware…
