SMOOTHBORE ORDNANCE JOURNAL VOL 7: British and Prussian Horse Artillery
Section 1: Monhaupt's 'About the use of horse artillery'
The Prussian GL von Monhaupt (1775-...1835) wrote an in-depth thesis on horse artillery in about 1808 and included historical examples, about the use of horse artillery. When writing this thesis, Monhaupt had already sixteen years experience in the Prussian army, and had participated in several campaigns, not without distinction. As such, this thesis gives an interesting insight in the contemporary views about the horse artillery, and its use in battle, in relation to the other arms. Translated by Geert van Uythoven.
Section 2: The British 6-Pdr as a Gun for the Horse Artillery
The British Light 6-pdr was extensively put through scientific tests and compared to the Prussian 6-pdr in 1822. They found the British Light 6-pdr to be a excellent piece for the horse artillery. Translated by Geert van Uythoven.
