OK. 'The regiment of giants'. Would our own military historians care to expand on this ? Of course they will enlighten us, but if not I will be happy to oblige.


This is an edit : C'mon, you German warriors - I am relying on you here. If not, I can tell you some good stuff for your records.

Nick - so glad you asked I will be delighted to do so if no European guys come forward.


Her is what I know so far. The Regiment of Giants was a famous Prussian royal unit of giant soldiers, officially 6 -7 feet tall, but some reports tell of 8 footers. Here are the links:-
