60mm Seven Years War

 
First Legion is very pleased to announce our latest figure range, the Seven Years War!   Fought from 1756 through 1763, the war involved most of the major world powers and was fought not only in Europe, but throughout their various colonial holdings around the world.  Though our intent with the range is to cover the European part of the conflict in detail, we have decided to start off with the Battle of Kunersdorf fought on August 12th 1759 between the Prussians and a combined Austro-Russian Army.   Kunersdorf was by far Frederick's worst defeat and in fact was the biggest fiasco of Prussian Military arms until their dismemberment at the hands of Napoleon's Grande Armee in 1806 at the twin battles of Jena-Auerstadt.  It may seem strange to cover the greatest defeat of Frederick the Great, certainly the finest military mind of the age, but we feel that the battle offers a variety of interesting troops, attacks and counterattacks, and cavalry charges by both sides.    It was a battle that Frederick had won in the morning, but then lost in the afternoon as he  continued to press the attack despite the protests of his generals through poor terrain, against strong allied positions, and in extremely hot weather.   The Prussian attacks finally ground to a halt due to a combination of fierce resistance and the thirst and exhaustion of the Prussian troops and the allies counterattacked and the Prussian army came apart, virtually dissolving.
