Kunersdorf and Zorndorf in 3D

Can you see the idyllic village of Kunersdorf in the center of the image? And the fortress, built by the Austro-Russian allies just in the north of it? This image will be the base for a 3D simulation of the battle of Kunersdorf 1759. The sprawled fires and smokes are result of the Austrian devastations the day before the battle... 
We will do 4 images describing the most horrible battle in the Seven Years War for a book.
Each image will show a deciding phase. More about it later. it isn´t still finished!

And this will be the animated battle of Zorndorf 1758. Above you see the territory, rendered  in the computer, still white; and below, the base for the battle pictures. Haha, Seydlitz will appear from the lower right side of the image, jumping out of the forest with 6000 cuirassiers!


  1. De très belles images, j'attends la suite!

  2. fascinating project - looking forward to seeing more

  3. Wow, I look forward to seeing where you go with this, Monseigneur.


  4. Thank you for this kind words! Concerning Kunersdorf, we start with a dark image - showing the early Prussian cannonade just before sunrise.. then the heat of the battle till 16.00 - the tragical end for Prussia...
    It is tricky to design the truth because of the different sources we have - none is similar to any other and the texts also. We will see...
