These line infantry soldiers are skilled in giving fire and pressing home an attack with the bayonet, but at the expense of dash and initiative.

Prussian line infantry revel in the hand-to-hand struggle of a good bayonet charge. They are quite capable of delivering a volley of devastating fire into an enemy with their smoothbore muskets. They have good morale, a legacy of being indoctrinated in their nation’s past glories, but this is no protection against artillery bombardment or the sniping of skirmishers. If threatened by cavalry, they can form square.

In the years before 1806 the Prussian army had become a little complacent, confident that the glories of the Seven Years War meant that a Prussian soldier was unbeatable. There was no need to change an army that had performed so well. Iron discipline was considered enough to beat any foe. While the immaculately turned out and perfectly drilled Prussians were superficially impressive, they turned out to be inadequate when facing a tactical genius like Napoleon.
