''La Belle Époque, the gilded age before 1914; when Kaisers, kings and czars still ruled. Their armies paraded in pickelhaubes, red tunics and the renowned pantalons rouges. Hussars gambled and caroused and officers drank champagne in the mess. Immaculate uniforms could be seen in all the fashionable places from the coffee houses of Vienna to the salons of Paris to the bier stubes of Zenda. It was the era of “Little Wars” and a “Gentleman’s War” and chocolate box soldiers. In the spirit of Eriksson, Wollner, Haffner, and Spenkuch - these are the soldiers of the Belle Époque.''
