While on the subject of Youtube (what would we be without it??), another filmfragment about the revolution.
Although maybe not all the uniform information is correct (eg the French regular army still existed at the 1792 Battle of Valmy and was clothed in their Bourbon white uniforms), it gives a great picture of the revolutionary period. Oh, and it is proven to all wargamers now that overhead artillery fire is possible.
As the revolution gained momentum, the heads of the Royal family were chopped off.
Here, the execution of Marie Antoinette.
