NAP0366 - Prussian Chief of Staff Gneisenau
Special Collectors Set - 230
First Legion is pleased to present you with the first of our Prussian mounted personality figures, Chief of Staff Gneisenau!   As a Major during the campaign of 1806-1807, Gneisenau was a staff officer on Prince Hohenlohe's Staff.  He distinguished himself as commandant of Kolberg where he held out until the treaty of Tilsit in 1807, an action which earned him promotion to Lieutenant Colonel.  He played a role in the reorganization of the Prussian military between 1807 and 1813 when Prussia once again took up arms against the French.   He was assigned as Blucher's quartermaster and thus the paths of these two men crossed and they would continue to serve together until the end of the Napoleonic Wars with Gneisenau as Blucher's Chief of Staff, second only in command to Blucher himself.   Limited to only 230 sets, NAP0366 will make an excellent addition to any serious Napoleonic toy soldier collection.
