On Campaign in East Prussia

The campaigning season must indeed be near as the 'Vauban and Shandy' blog found itself gazing across the river Oder at the former territory of the Prussia, now in Poland;

and in particular the fortress of Kustrin - bastion from the days of Frederick 1st

and sometime prison of Frederick the Great,

and the site of the execution of his friend and conspirator, the 'unfortunate Katt.'

It is a time of great celebration as Prussia celebrates 'Frederich der Grosse 300' - and the city of Berlin is doing 'Der Alte Fritz' proud.
