      As far as I know, no Brazilian units ever fought in Europe during the Napoleonic Wars. Brazil's southern border was cause for much concern during those times.

      Some Brazilian officers did fight in the Peninsular War.

                If the art of war were nothing but the art of avoiding risks,glory would become the prey of mediocre minds. Napoleon

                • Nice pictures though!

                  Paul
                  ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
                  All human ills he can subdue,
                  Or with a bauble or medal
                  Can win mans heart for you;
                  And many a blessing know to stew
                  To make a megloamaniac bright;
                  Give honour to the dainty Corse,
                  The Pixie is a little shite.

                      You will find most of these on this website http://imperiall.1bb.ru/index.php?showtopic=1590&st=195

                      Under the name of Kirill76.

                      If there is a Blue button under the picture on the left hand side – pressing it will bring up the full size image.

                      If NO Blue button then ‘what you see is what you get’.

                      Hope this helps.

                        The long toll of the brave
                        Is not lost in darkness
                        Over the fruitful earth
                        And athwart the seas
                        Hath passed the light of noble deeds
                        Unquenchable forever.
