A nice little diorama of the attempted Anglo-Russian invasion of Holland 1799

One of the lesser known chapters in Napoleonic history is the attack of an Anglo-Russian force on the Batavian Republic in 1799.

Geert Uythofen wrote a nice book about it of which I have a handsigned copy in my collection:-)

Hopefully one day there will be an English translation. For those not able to read Dutch take a look at this link from Wikipedia

Now on the blog are photos from a nice diorama at Fort Kijkudin.

Here some of the photos, sadly no close ups of the figures.


  1. The same for you Rob, enjoy the peaceful days!


  2. Frohe Weihnachten dir und deine Familie, und lass die Finger von zu viel Gänsebraten...
