It’s good isn’t it!

I didn’t realise that before push of pike, the pikemen would deploy like that in front of the musketeers. On the other hand, I always thought it made more sense for the pike to be spread across the whole battalion, behind the muskets at first then moving through the files when cavalry were in the offing. Maybe it’s all too complicated a manoeuvre.

That is so brilliant in concept and execution David. Thanks for posting the link.
