Luetzow's Freikorps NTW Icon
Leutzow's Freikorps are a unique light cavalry regiment in Napoleon: Total War. They are available to Prussia with the Coalition Battle Pack DLC.


Swift light cavalry, the riders of Luetzow’s Freikorps are excellent in melee and on the charge.

The men of Luetzow’s Freikorps have immense pride in their regiment and as a consequence exhibit excellent morale. These fast, light cavalry are an effective fighting force whether charging home or fighting in close quarters. Their flexibility in battle makes them ideal for use against artillery and skirmishers, but will be of little utility against heavier cavalry in melee. As with any cavalry unit their biggest threat is infantry in square formation.

A certain amount of romance is attached to Luetzow’s Freikorps. Following a crushing defeat on 17th July 1813, the Freikorps began recruiting in earnest; during this time a large number of intellectuals, artists and poets were drawn to Luetzow’s regiment. This was thanks in part to his reputation for personal bravery and the regiment’s reputation for derring-do. This reputation that was upheld by one of the Corps most famous members, Eleonore Prochaska: she disguised herself as a man and fought alongside her fellow soldiers until she finally met her end at the Battle of Goehrde. It was only as Prochaska lay wounded, still beating time on a stolen French drum, that she admitted her deception to her lieutenant. She was removed from the field and lived for three weeks before succumbing to her wounds.

General InformationEdit

Leutzow's Freikorps are statistically similar to regular Prussian Hussars, possessing better morale and a slightly higher charging bonus but having poorer defense. Their fragility makes them unsuitable for fighting heavy troops for extended periods of time, but their excellent stamina and respectable charging bonus make them a good unit for hit and run tactics.
