Re: Solid Square Vs Open Square

The training argument has it merits for the Napoleonic wars. However, the Prussians still used the solid square later, when their training became good again; the enlisted men of the line regiments had a service time of 3 years. So my feeling is that their column structure and options this formation offered were more important for them than the advantages a hollow square had.
