The 21ème Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne is a North American infantry-based regiment. We pride ourselves in our battle skill where we use quick paced maneuvers and line formations to bring hell down upon our foes. We recognize ourselves as a mature regiment, able to get serious when we need to be, yet having fun all the same. We won't permit trolling inside or outside our linebattles/teamspeak. Trolling is strictly prohibited and will be met with appropriate discipline. Trainings are important. It teaches members formations and drills that will be executed on the field of battle, crucial to our quick deployment and most importantly the casualties we impose on the enemy. We look to build a solid community of friendship in our regiment, making our experience in NW even more enjoyable.
The 21ème Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne is one of the oldest regiments in the world. It was raised in 1598 by Henri de Vaubecourt. Moving ahead to the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars, the regiment seen action at several decisive battles. The 21e would come to distinguish itself in conflicts such as Veronnia, Maggano, Trebbia, Austerlitz, Auerstadt, Jena, Eylau, and Wargram. In 1806 Davout's Corps found itself facing the main Prussian army under the Duke of Brunswick at Auerstadt, whilst Napoleon was defeating what he believed to be the main army at Jena. The 21e defended the village of Hassenhausen in the centre of the French line. Corporal Boutloup of the Voltigeur company, along with six men, took a Prussian gun and caisson and turned it on the Prussians. These men, having killed the gun crew, manned the cannon for over half an hour until ammunition was exhausted. Losses were heavy but the three divisions of the 3eme Corp became famous through the Armee as "Les Trois Immortelles". A great reputation to have, the 21e held it throughout the whole of the Napoleonic Wars.
