Today we have the fabulous Kurassiers von Bunting, which fought as part of von Schmettau's 3rd Division at Jena Auerstadt
|Original plate - by R. Knoetel ?
Within the Prussian cavalry the Kurassiers enjoyed higher prestige than dragoons and uhlans. The men and horses in Kurassier regiments were bigger and stronger, a factor important not only on parades. They were the battle-cavalry who on battlefield charged en masse crushing the enemy with sheer force.
