Husares Badeneses, 1806–1812

Husares Badeneses, 1806–1812

Upon the union of the extinct Baden-Baden lineage with Baden-Durlach in 1771, Markgrave Carl Friedrich of Baden-Durlach inherited a hussar detachment of one officer, a sergeant, fourier, and 18 hussars. The hussars served as staff aides, and mounted police patrols to uphold law and order. By the time the French Emperor Napoleon elevated Baden to a grand duchy in 1806, the Baden Hussars had been increased to a regiment of four squadrons, organized on the French model. The Baden Hussars were considered one of the best cavalry regiments in Europe; they were nominally attached to the French Imperial Guard. The 1:72 scale Revell miniatures pictured above are mounted on a 38 × 76 mm «cavalry skirmish stand» compatible with Volley & Bayonet.

On 28 November 1812, during the Battle of Berezina, the cavalry brigade of Baden Hussars and Hesse-Darmstadt Chevaulegers launched a valiant charge against superior Russian forces, from which only 50 troopers returned. This attack bought valuable time for the Grande Armée's retreat across the Berezina.
