Yes I had come upon this site before, it lists the total strength which could be useful but at the division level it would be great to get some more detail.
I was curious about that. Is there a way possibly estimate what the average strength of a french or german division was in 1870-71?
In Lieu of number which I didn't think would be exact, (should have been more specific in question,) it would be equivalent if there was a resource that described the performance of each division. Perhaps if an atlas or something like it exists for the conflict, I know it's somewhat obscure.
Not sure if you would agree, but at least with the german army it stayed in tact organizationally throughout WW1, where in which there are more recent records. I do not know if the French army was still the Army Of The Rhine, but there may be records slightly before or after 1870-71 that may be close enough for what i need.
A record of casualties suffered by each corps (better yet division) I could come of with an idea of how each divison performed. any more information along those lines I could really use, thank you!
Hey! Hows it going so far?
no worries, I understand this is a difficult topic, let me know if i can be of any more help
Anyone have any luck with this? In Lieu of exact numbers, the number of troops in a typical division or brigade would be helpful.
Hello! I appreciate the effort but this seems to be from 1916, The battle of verdun which was midway through the war. In addition, while the German/Prussian armies remained similar in structure, it appears that the French "Army Of The Rhine" Present in the franco prussian war, was completely dismantled by WW1.
Possibly curious as to if any french speakers would mind tackling this. I have a feeling the information I need is somewhere in a french document somewhere.
