In the late 1860's and early 1870's France fought in both Italy and then in its own defence against Prussia in the Franco-Prussian War. Technology was moving at fast pace with new weaponry like breach loading rifles, breach loading rifled artillery, huge field artillery guns and even primitive machine guns appearing on the battlefields - an ominous sign of things to come in future wars.
This army of Republican France is for those forces fielded in the latter part of Franco-Prussian War after Napoleon III's abdication, and also in the fight against the Paris Communards.
Manufactured by the world leaders in 10mm wargaming, Pendraken Miniatures, this complete army pack is the perfect way to begin gaming this great historical period.
