Hi, guys!

Here http://www.datinastrabuna.ro/blog/ you can find an episode from a book I write about 1848/1849 revolution in Transylvania (romanian language only). It is a "roman istoric" based on lifes and deeds of romanain, hungarian and austrian peoples who participated to the events and battles of 1848/1849. Any feedback is more than welcomed here or on blog's adress.

More episodes will follow if demands will show up :)

Enjoy!

Very interesting 21 inf,
I didn't know that the basic unit for composing large units was not the battalion but the company, and that the regiment doesn't function in practice as a tactical unit, but rather as a mobilization center! I'm eagerly waiting the next episodes!

Even the regular austrian army had big dificulties in the era to maintain a great number of soldiers on the field, due to lack of proper services to feed them. Winter clothing for soldiers was unusual also, as it was not a common practice to fight in winter. So, normally the generals use to have a smaller number of soldiers in their units that we think today. Usually, a force of 2.000 men was considered very big in 1848. A company was made by up to 200 men. Batalions were formed by gathering few companies, but not always the superiors oficers managed to gather all the companies od the battalion, so mixed companies from various battalions were added. Of course were prefered in a battalion companied that trained together, but this was not always posible. Sometimes, officers refused to give to other battalions experienced companies in exchange for less experienced ones.

In the battle of Simeria, in february 1849, decisive for the strategic initiative in 1848/1849 war, both austrian and hungarian army fielded about 7.000 men each, which was considered huge. After a one day battle (including some hours of artillery fire exchange), the losses on both side numbered about 600-700 men each. Figures again were not so huge as one in modern day could imagine.

Thanks very much, 21 inf!
As it is obvious, I am not too familiar with the military situation around the year 1848, my comparison is made ​​with the situation of the independence war, or, especially, with the one from the First World War I know better! Thanks for giving me this clarifications!
