Preussen tapte ved Jena-Auerstedt
Slaget ved Jena-Auerstedt var egentlig to parallelle feltslag utkjempet på platået vest for Saale-elva i dagens Tyskland, mellom styrkene til keiser Napoléon I av Frankrike og Fredrik Vilhelm III av Preussen. Napoléon med den franske hovedstyrken tilintetgjorde en prøyssisk armé ved Jena. I det parallelle slaget ved Auerstedt atten kilometer unna, beseiret marskalk Louis Nicolas Davout den prøyssiske hovedstyrken, enda Davouts hær var mindre enn prøyssernes. Til sammen deltok over 200 000 soldater i dette dobbeltslaget, som bare varte i noen timer.

Dette avgjørende prøyssiske nederlaget fant sted bare nitten dager etter landets mobilisering, og førte til at Preussen ble utestengt fra den anti-franske koalisjonen fram til frigjøringskrigen i 1813.

    • What is Black Powder Shooting?

      What is black powder shooting? What is black powder used for? Is it something for me? This article is meant as an introduction to the sport of black powder shooting, and it is also recommended as an introductory text to the svartkrutt.net web site. \"Svartkrutt\" means “black powder” in Norwegian.

    For sale: a Beaumont Vitali rifle

    For sale: A Dutch Beaumont rifle made by P. Stevens in Maastricht The Netherlands. It was made in 1874 as a single shot rifle and transformed to a magazine rifle in 1890 for the Dutch army. It doesn't have the small cracks in the wood around the magazine (a known weak spot). All Beaumont Vitali's lack the cleaning rod unfortunately. It has good rifling and good working mechanism. The magazine and rear sight still have the "dirty" type blueing.

    I have lots of pictures, so ask for more.

    Sales price is 530 euros incl. shipping to Norway with DPD.
