Liberec 2018

Austrian troops. Talking about Barry Lyndon this photo of a Seven Years War battle (photo by Infanterie Regiment Kaiser I / Franz I. Stephan  von Lothringen-Bar) is superb.

Andrey found this and posted it on my Seven Years War Living History page on Facebook. It reminds me of the film Barry Lyndon.
