8071 Prussian grenadiers of the Frederick II
The Prussian army of the Frederick II first in the Europe of the 18th century started to use motion with keeping of step for manoeuvre during a combat. It had been required extremely high discipline from soldiery and it had been achieved by rough corporal punishments. As a result regiments of the Frederick II, in addition to high rate of shooting, had been stood out for excellent manoeuvrability. Because of that in 1757 during battle of Leuthen the Prussian army performed fast flanking movement and won a victory.
