This is the first of what will be several I assume, but this is a terrific introduction to French infantry organization. It starts high level in the intro but then zooms in and explores the unit composition down at the ordinaire level.

It then moves up from Sections all the way to Brigade. Later episodes will cover larger formations as well as Cavalry and Artillery.

Reminds me that I need more surgeons and orderly figures.

I watched that this morning also. Well worth the time to view.

This was fantastic! Thank you for sharing and posting. I hope they release the other documentaries on combined arms, etc., shortly…

"Front rank kneeling to fire " Is that so?

Very nicely done, maybe most I ever saw, doubt read on the French.
Pointing out lately, for playing nothing else but Napoleonic era armies since 1981 never once commanded a French figure.
