I've always wondered why the Portuguese Light Infantry (the Caçadores) are only 3 blocks. Their reputation is very good.

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.

I agree with you Mark !

Wellington at Waterloo said : "I wish my Portuguese Infantry was here...".

Near the Military School of Infantry in Mafra (North of Lisbon), there's a monument dedicated to Portuguese Infantry with a sentence from general Beresford (written in Portuguese) :

" Não ha na Europa Infantaria como a Portuguesa."

" There's no Infantry in Europe like the Portuguese."

My father, during a part of his national service, was a junior officer caçador in Guinea Bissau. (not the same way of fighting...)

Read over and over again the campaigns of Alexander, Hannibal, Caesar, Gustavus, Turenne, Eugene and Frederic. ... This is the only way to become a great general and master the secrets of the art of war.~Napoleon
