This series of plates, titled “A History of the Prussian Hussars” (“Die Geschichte der preussischen Husaren”), is commonly known as the Fanfaro series. It comprises a pictorial history of the Prussian hussars from 1721 to the end of the Napoleonic wars. This is a work of exceptional quality and historical importance. Part I consists of 200 prints covering each regiment of the hussars from 1721 up to the reorganization of the Prussian army following its catastrophic defeat at the battles of Jena-Auerstedt in 1806. Part II covers the regiments from 1807 through the triumphant victory at Waterloo in 1815. 

The illustrations are by Kurt Geiss and the research into the uniform details was done by August-Wilhelm Stragand.

The plates were originally released several per month beginning in 1980. They are meticulously researched and offer one of the most authentic picturizations of the Prussian hussars available. Published by Ulf-J.Friese und Uwe Lacina Editionen, they are high quality full color prints 24cm x 34cm (9½” x 10¼”) printed on heavy stock.
