Bernd Baltzar (Gunka no Baltzer) -19th Century Warfare manga
 
Quote:

From Mangaupdates:
Glory being won over the roar of cannon fire. Peace exists simply as a time to prepare for the next battle. In a military advanced nation, Baltzar advanced quickly up in the ranks. However, his career takes a sudden turn when he is reassigned as a military advisor in a neighboring allied nation with little military power and the lack of civilian support of firearms. Will Major Baltzar be able to win over the hearts of the soldiers and civilians?
A very good manga i just read. The setting is set during the 19th century and the main character is a Major sent to an allied nation to teach it's military cadets on 19th century warfare and winning over it's pacifist populace.

I enjoyed the 1800's uniforms, the tactics and it's setting but what i enjoyed the most is the main character Baltzar.

Oh thank God, I was worried that this manga was dropped.

...the thread title's incorrect though, since judging by the weapons they're no longer in a Napoleonic era, not with the advent of bolt-action rifles :heh:

Apologies about that. When i read the 1st chapter, i assume it was Napoleonic era due to the uniforms but now the manga shows it's actually Industrial era.:heh:

the muzzleloader in Gunka no Baltzar is using a flintlock mechanism instead of using a percussion cap it seems

Weissen seems to be inspired by the the former North German Confederation and seems to have the same problem of the North German Confederation (trying to absorb their southern neighbors into their political sphere)

Been meaning to give this a go when I saw the thread awhile back but just never got round to it till I saw chapter 7 was just released and gave the series a read.
And it's actually quite good, not bad at all.
So far it's kinda stayed on topic and glad it has altho it's only been 7 chapters and like any story can go off the rails at any time but I get the feeling we might not see that....at least not for some time.

Can kinda guess at some stuff to come but how it all unravels should be an interesting read.
I wonder if that prince/king(the older brother) will regret his current "lifestyle" seems almost too obvious.....kinda hope it does actually go how I imagine, never been fond of them types anyway.

Look forward to seeing more now.

The last chapter was great, Baltzar is in a pinch but I'm sure he will succeed in his plans. Or maybe it will end in a great war?

I've enjoyed the series greatly so far, but I'm kinda concerned regarding how the series is pivoting itself.

It feels like it's not really looking to develop the student characters or establish a key cast of prominent supporting characters, but rather just revolve the story around the main protagonist, using the setting's characters as-needed to further the plot.

I wish it would also focus more on the students,especially the trap
