Wurttemberg Jaegers

First Legion presents you with the Wurttemberg Army of the Napoleonic Wars.   Part of the Confederation of the Rhine, the Wurttemberg Troops fought valiantly as part of France's Grande Armee.   Our initial release, the Wurttemberg Jaegers along with Marshal Murat, depicts the morning battle in the Fleches at Borodino when Murat was nearly captured in a Russian counterattack.  He called upon the Wurttemberg Jaegers to "fire" (though, his German wasn't very good and in fact he called upon them to "sh_t!" rather than "shoot" providing a moment of levity in an otherwise dire situation) and they saved the dashing Marshal from certain death or capture.
