Ried Light Corps
Ried light corps, 3686 infantry and cavalry: during the battle Ried did his best to slow Frederick advance in the woods and later counterattacked the Prussian in the flank.
Ried himself with the Deutsche Feldjager Corps:
Grenz Regiment 66, Slavonische Broder:
The husaren: I painted HR24 P.A.Hesterhazy, but at Torgau there was the HR32 Szecheny. Indeed, the first (wrong) OOB I was able to find gave HR24: moreover they have a colorful uniform:
HR 24 Paul Anton Esterhazy (from Brauer Bogen, Tafel 71):
HR 32 Szecheny (from Brauer Bogen, Tafel 71):
The Staff Dragoner and Infantry Regiments:
the blue coat of the Staff regiment allowed the outfit to evade capture in the confused final stages of the battle: they were mistook for Prussians!
