Re: Solid Square Vs Open Square

Moin, moin :D

a hollow sqare formed from quarter distant column requires, if we are talking about platoons with only two ranks, at least 5 platoons in a row in order to get some kind of flank => hollow square .

Each "half" of a Prussian column consisted of 4 platoons in a row, so the whole formation was two platoons wide, 4 deep. On the battlefield the Prussian platoon (Zug) operated usually in two ranks, the third rank was used as Schützen, so we are talking about a only 8 rank deep formation. How could this form a hollow square in the British manner, how to create a flank with a simple reliable method, that can be used on the battlefield?
