Brunswick Line Infantry are a type of line infantry in Napoleon: Total War and The Peninsular Campaign.


These line infantry are exceptionally good soldiers, the superiors of many in melee and musketry.

They are an extremely versatile force, and can be relied on to give a good account of themselves in most circumstances. Cavalry will have an extremely hard time breaking any Brunswick square. However, like other line infantry they cannot be left exposed to punishing cannon fire: their bravery and skills are of little use against an artillery bombardment. Like other musket-armed infantry they are vulnerable to skirmishers if their attackers keep under cover and at long range.

Brunswick Infantry fought alongside British troops in the Peninsular War (1810-14). They were organised, armed and equipped in a largely British fashion, as might have been expected: the men came from the “Black Band”, a Brunswicker force that had been evacuated from Germany by the Royal Navy just ahead of an advancing French army. Once reformed and retrained, and then despatched to Spain, the Brunswickers proved their worth time and again as troops who could be relied on to fight, and fight hard. They kept this reputation, and were in the Anglo-Allied army at Waterloo (18 June 1815), gallantly defending the farmhouse of La Haye Sainte against repeated French attacks.

General InformationEdit

In the standard version of Napoleon: Total War, Brunswick Line Infantry appear exclusively in the Battle of Waterloo. They are slightly worse than generic Foot in most ways, but can hold their own against Napoleon's army.

Brunswick Line Infantry may also be recruited in The Peninsular Campaign.
