Historical Overview - 84e Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne "Un Contre Dix"

The 84th Line, created in 1684 was known by the Battle of Graz .On 25 and 26 June 1809, two battalions of the 84th defended a church cemetery for many hours against thousands of Austrian soldiers. In the end, the regiment broke through and escaped their enemies. In honor of the regiment's outstanding bravery on this occasion, the 84th was allowed to add the words UN CONTRE DIX (One Against Ten) on their colors.

Here are a few details about this combat. Two battalions of the 84th Line with 2 guns entered the town of Graz, seized the stable and cleared the streets, and took 450 prisoners. The Austrians held only the church and cemetery. Fierce musketry halted the 84e, but at midnight the French scaled the cemetery's walls and took the defenders by surprise. Approximately 120 Austrians surrendered. The French realized that there were more Austrians in the neighbourhood, and the 84th considered a withdrawal only to find that the whitecoats had surrounded them. The 84e put all prisoners into the church, and took cover behind cemetery wall. Although most of the Austrian forces were militia, they outnumbered the French by 10 to 1, the only first rate unit was the Simbish Infantry Regiment. In the morning the whitecoats attacked the cemetery several times. In one attack they penetrated the church to liberate their comrades, in another attack they dragged off one cannon before the French counterattacked and retook it. In one of the last attacks the whitecoats scaled the wall and captured one of 84th's eagles, but Sergeant Legouge single-handedly entered the fight to save the eagle. Running out of ammunition the French decided to use bayonets and cut their way to safety, and they escaped and met up with a relieving troops sent by Marshal Marmont.
For the loss of three officers and 31 men killed, 12 officers and 192 men wounded, and 40 captured, they inflicted an estimated 500 casualties on the Austrians.

Organisation of the Regiment

The Regiment will consist of Line Infantry for the time being. In Regimental linebattles, however, we will work with formations and try to re-enact historical line formations. These formations require high discipline and knowledge of the game and the commands. One example of this is a double firing column with line infantry and officers standing behind them. If we come to use various other units we'll be using light infantry as a flanking force with devastating firepower. We will try to bring historical 1800s fighting as realistic as possible to the battlefield in Mount & Blade: Warband - Napoleonic Wars. The Regiment will also use a wide variety of historical British military ranks. These ranks will be shown in-game, but they will be in the Teamspeak as well. Reaching higher ranks in the Enlisted section requires you to be skilful and very loyal. These ranks will be shown in-game, but they will be in the Teamspeak as well.
