Minden 250th

Of course the Seven Years War was at its height 250 years ago and on the other side of the Altlantic and in what is now Germany redcoats were battling the French in what was seen at the time as the main theatre of war. This clip from German tv shows the reenactors...some of whom I recognise...
I don't plan to feature the European theatre much but this was a crucial event and is worth checking out. Images from Kersten Kircher from the recent Minden 250th and the gathering at Fulda here
