This highland fellow is easily recognized by oversized beret. His raspberry pom-pom distinguishes him as a grenadier. The Bergstaat highland grenadiers suffered high casualties in the fighting around Geseburg. The remnants of these tenacious troops were later folded into the regular Ludwigian forces.

Filled with the best intentions, many foreigners flocked to Unkerlant, and its various factions, to help with struggle for a united Unkerlant. Very few actually made it. Travel in and out of Unkerlant, even with todays trains and aeroplanes, is spotty at best. And with most of the borders closed, even harder. Most foreigners are forced through Transbalkania, where they are arrested. if they are lucky. Worse, if they are unlucky.
One unit, however, has distinguished itself fighting for the more progressive PFU forces. The Ben Franklin Battalion, from the US, is made up from a collection of WWI vets and adventuresome scientists.
Unkerlant's isolation, both politically and geographically, has attracted academia for years. When not studying the country's peculiar linguistics, geology, flora, fauna and scientific advances (or lack there of), members of the Ben Franklin battalion can be found kicking in some teeth of those jack booted thugs, the UNF.

The chieftain was impressed. He would not convert, but from that point on, his descendants would. St. Osbert would come to embody the fighting spirit of the people of Unkerlant. Battling on despite the odds.

Winter this year has been particularly brutal, but battle lines have stabilized during the frigid temperatures. With Spring here, no doubt hostilities will continue.
A quick look at the map shows only four cities still up for grabs, as they say. Gesehburg in the south, Grunburg in Hochland, Ostvald in the north and neighboring Wurzen, capital of Franistover.
The next battle, when it surely comes, will mostly likely happen in Gesehburg. Fascist and communist factions have been building up in neighboring towns and village. Whatever happens, it will most likely be a brutal affair. Gesehburg is Unkerlant's highest city, located in the steep Widowfang mountains. Few roads access it, so it will come as no surprise the recently seized Carroburg Zeppelin Works by Fascist forces may aid them in their assault. The vaunted Iron Legion Zeppelintruppen may come into action. Until now, they have seen little action as UNF leaders have been reluctant to lose any of this elite unit in some petty skirmish.
