The Reichsarmee

Sächsischer Kreis

In addition to the regular army, Saxony had to supply four infantry regiments for service with the Reichsarmee. When Saxony surrendered to the Prussians in 1756, the ongoing mobilization of the Kreis regiments was disrupted. Prussia inducted the existing Saxon regiments, and heavy recruiting of Saxon subjects began. Desertion was high, and many Saxons joined Prinz Xaver’s army in exile.
