4. Schlesische Landwehr Regiment
A Kompanie 1. Musketier Battalion



"A decree of the king established the landwehr, based on the model
of that of Austria of 1809. ... As the impoverished state of Prussian finances precluded
much assistance from the State, the expense of equipment had to fall on the men
themselves, or their villages. ...." (Petre - "Napoleon at War" p 114)





Welcome!
The 1st battalion, 4th Silesian landwehr is an infantry regiment formed in the year 1809, to kick the French out of our glorious Prussia. Made up of brave Silesian men aged 25 to 40, what the 4th Silesian lacked in shine and polish, like the rest of the Prussian army, made up for in dedication to the cause. Because of the many financial troubles of Prussia at the time, it fell upon many average men to pay for their uniforms, and weapons and other such items they would need to combat the French. Fighting in the "Wars of Liberation" the brave Silesian lads beat the French out of Prussia, and eventually back to France, serving valiantly until 1815. The men of the landwehr faced unprecedented hardships, even off the field of battle, "Their uniforms had to be provided by the municipalities, which led to many unfortunates marching off to war in terribly poor quality clothing which quickly fell apart. They had only one pair of shoes, which often fit badly and were frequently torn off in deep mud, leaving many soldiers barefoot for much of the campaign." (Digby-Smith, - p 36). Fighting for the freedom of their home, the Silesian landwehr is dedicated to defend the fatherland!

About
The 4th Landwehr regiment is a community formed on April 27, 2013 by both experienced, and new players in the Napoleonic Wars community. We are a continuation of the 1tes Pommerches Infanterie regiment, disbanded just 2 months ago. With experienced officers and NCO's we hope to offer players a serious, disciplined regiment that utilized the historical use of double rank lines.  We are very active, having 3 linebattles and two trainings a week. We have long, in depth trainings in which we hone our skills in shooting, discipline, formations, and hand to hand combat. The 4th Silesian Landwehr's organization focuses on historical, concepts, on both the company, and the platoon level. These will be talked about in the "company organization" section. We hope to create a welcoming community both on the field, and off of it. We have a code of conduct that every member must read and agree to, that outlines acceptable and unacceptable behaviors of members of the regiment. A violation of the code of conduct will result in a warning, and a talk with an officer, and further violation will result in an immediate kick from the regiment.

Für das Vaterland!
