Line Infantry “Marching regiments” or “line battalions” make up the majority of units in European-style armies. They are so called because they form the line of battle, not because they always deploy in lines. Indeed, over time the capabilities of line infantry should improve as new tactics, drill and weaponry are developed.

These soldiers carry muzzle-loading, smoothbore muskets firing lead balls as wide as a man’s thumb. These are inaccurate weapons, effective only over 200 paces or so and when fired in massed volleys. The ability to fire and reload with machine-like regularity with shot and bullet flying and comrades falling all around is what wins battles.

Historically, in many armies colonels received a fee to raise regiments, which remained their personal property and commands. They jealously guarded their rights to appoint friends, relatives and hangers-on as regimental officers. This contractor system, however, allowed unscrupulous officers to make handsome profits by pocketing the pay of non-existent soldiers. The better colonels did take a pride in their regiments, spending their own fortunes on good uniforms and weapons. The capabilities of a “standard” line infantry unit therefore varied between nations and over time. It wasn’t until the 1760s that anything approaching uniformity of drill, equipment and regulations became the norm.

Line infantry regiments remained unchanged throughout the period, and their organisational pattern still forms the basis of modern military units.

1 Barracks army-admin 1 0
A national army requires central organisation, if only for pay and rations. Regiments may be the preserve of their commanding officers, but the functionaries control the purse strings!
2 Drill School army-admin 2 0
A drill school creates the common practices for an army, and turns a collection of disparate forces into a precise and clockwork killing machine.
3 Military Academy army-admin 3 0
A military academy is a training establishment for young officers, those who must rely on talent, rather than connections or wealth, for preferment.
4 Army Board army-admin 4 0
This is the centre of the army’s bureaucracy, where clerks and secretaries of state labour to make the fighting soldiers’ lives as awkward as possible!
5 Army Staff College army-admin 5 1
This institution educates soldiers in more advanced aspects of warfare, not just in the theory of tactics.
6 Military Governor's Barracks government_minor 3 0
Barracks provide more than simple housing blocks for regular military forces. The buildings also serve to remind the local people who is in charge.
7 Royal Palace government_minor 4 0
The residence of a sovereign should inspire awe and dread in equal measure, overwhelming lesser men by its magnificence.
