Re: The Russians are coming, The Russians are comi

Robert,

Could the 10 block committment have anything to do with the practice of having 10 sqns of hvy and 10 sqns of lt cav attached to each division?

A look through the OOB's of 1807 will show a pattern of a cuir rgt, a drg rgt (or two drg rgts) and a hussar rgt. If this is all that is available to a higher commander, then that is all he would use, wouldn't it?

As for later years it would take a few years of practice and experience to properly use the new cavalry divisions and corps, wouldn't it?
