Witttenberg foot regiment Von Milckau

the refurbishment of the foot regiments for Wittenberg gets off to a start, first one done is regiment Von Milckau with uniform in Duchy of Saxony civil guard from the early years of the TYW.


  1. Smart looking chaps , do you have any suggestions for books about the military side of the TYW ? , Tony

    1. I've been referring to the most part to the Osprey books - Imperial Armies of the Thirty Years War, no.s 1&2 ( also there is the Army of Gustavus Adophus no.s 1 & 2)

      Eduard Wagner’s European Weapons & Warfare 1618-1648, is worth getting - for all the general info on arms, equipments etc.

      A couple of free history online books which are useful for background reading

      The History of the Thirty Years' War by Friedrich Schiller

      The Thirty Years' War, 1618-1648 by Samuel Rawson Gardiner

      I'm still building up reference material as I go...

  2. Thanks for the tips. I'm listening to the history by Schiller on U Tube, Tony
