1806-1945...Vorwartz!

Vorwartz!




Bonjour à tous,
Un article un peu spécial aujourd'hui...
Traversons un siècle et demie en compagnie d'une sélection 
de nos Prussiens...qui deviendront bientôt Allemands...




Hello everyone,
A somewhat special post today ...
Let's cross a century and a half in the company of Prussians, then Germans...



1806



Alors commençons par les bicornes,
 Napoléon doit être battu, et la victoire est certaine
pour cette splendide armée...Auerstaedt et Iena seront bientôt de monumentales surprises...


So, let's start with the bicornes, 
Napoleon must be fought, and victory is certain
for this splendid army ... Auerstaedt and Jena will soon be monumental surprises ...



1806 Prussian line infantry, Strachwitz regiment.


1806 Prussian line infantry, Sanitz regiment.


1806 Prussian Fusilers.


1806 Prussian Jâgers.

1806, Prussian artillery.



1806, Prussian Henchell regiment and command.





1806 - Napoléon entre à Berlin.  Il en profite pour s'accaparer le quadrige de la porte de Brandebourg, à l'arrière sur cette gravure...le début d'un symbole.
1806 - Napoleon enters Berlin. He took the opportunity to grab the Quadriga
 of the Brandenburg Gate, in the back of this drawing...the beginning of a symbol.




On retrouve quelques années plus tard cette armée, le bicorne disparaît 
et l'esprit de revanche anime chaque régiment...

 Let's find this army a few years later, the bicorn disappears
and the spirit of revenge animates every regiment ...



1813 : Prussian Jâger guards.



1813 : Prussian foot Guard.



1813 : Prussian Guard Grenadiers



Frederic Guillaume II entre sous la porte triomphalement en 1814...
après avoir récupéré le quadrige, et fait installer un nouvel aigle. 
Frederick William II enters under the door triumphantly in 1814 ... 
after collecting the Quadriga, and installed a new eagle.

1870


Arrivée du casque à pointe, protection contre des armes 
plus efficaces et de portées plus lointaines.

Arrival of the spiked helmet, protection against 
more effective and more distant ranges weapons.


1870 Prussian line regiment.


1870, Cuirrassiers regiment.

La proclamation de l'Empire Allemand le 18 janvier 1871, la porte revêt des habits de fête.
The proclamation of the German Empire on January 18, 1871, the door takes on festive clothes.



Les cicatrices de 1870 ne se referment pas, et la première guerre mondiale éclate...

The 1870 scars do not heal, and the First World War begins...


1914



1914 German line infantry.



1914 German machine gun.



1914 German artillery.






La cavalerie est encore utilisée en reconnaissance, mais devient désuète...

The cavalry is still used in recognition, but becomes obsolete ...

WW1 German artillery.



1914, défilé sous les portes de Brandeburg...

WW2, MG in shelter.


WW2, mitrailleuse et ruines...
WW2, ruins and German Machine Gun.



WW2, Infanterie allemande.
WW2, German infantry.

Raus, schnell.!


La porte...en 1945...Seuls deux chevaux tiennent encore debout,
 le reste porte les stigmates de la bataille de Berlin.
The door ... in 1945 ... Only two horses are still standing,
 the rest bears the scars of the battle of Berlin.


De nos jours, après une restauration mouvementée : initialement sans l'Aigle de Prusse ni la Croix de fer...éléments rajoutés après la réunification...mais c'est une autre histoire!
Today, after a hectic restoration : initially without the Eagle of Prussia or the Iron Cross ... elements added after reunification ... but that's another story!



Merci à tous, Thanks everyone, Vielen Dank an alle...

Phil.

  8. Very nice I have an 1806 and 1813 Prussian Army in 15m. Just one point by 1805 the sergeants spontoons had been abolished in the Prussian Army. I reused the figures by drilling them all out and replacing the spontoons with 25mm scale metal javelins and used them as standard bearers.

  12. Thats an excellent post phil, very cool seeing the nation through time. I've thought of that at times that the prussuan troops we play fighting in 1813-15 may have been the ancestors of the troops of 1914 or 1940's.

  15. Hi Phil,i like the theme of the regimental ages of Prussians & Germans set against the back drop of the Brandenburg Gate,a symbolic thing now fully restored.
    Splendid looking model soldiers too.
    i especially like the scratch built stuff too.
    It all helps create illusion by way of photo shots.
    So well done on another good topic,that`s well worth looking at. BB
