Hierarchical Path: Seven Years' War (Main Page) >> Armies

Some terminology...

Official names of the armies of the period
Terminology used for flags
...presentation of Generalities about long-arms
and Generalities about Powder
...a tentative Colour Chart for uniforms and flags
...information about Prisoners of war during this period
...and explanations on these confusing Hessian armies
During the Seven Years' War, there were two distinct Hessian landgravates fielding units: Hessen-Darmstadt and Hessen-Kassel. Furthermore, these landgravates fought on different sides. Finally, to make things more complicated, there was a county of Hessen-Hanau which was part of the landgravate of Hessen-Kassel. The article Hessian Armies clarifies the situation and helps to distinguish these two armies.
