Along with numerous programs and events on occasion of the Military Museum Day, and with wish to present more of our collections to broad public an art lovers, the Museum has prepared an exhibition „Martin Engelbreht And His Time“. This is a unique opportunity to exhibit material of great cultural and historical value that was never presented before.
Collection of copper engravings of Martin Engelbreht was made between 1742 and 1748 and was named “Théàtre de la milice etrangère. Schau- Bühne verschiedener bisshero in Teutschland undekaňt gewester Soldaten von ausländischen Nationen“ (Theatre of various soldiers of foreign nations, unknown to Germans until now). It is one of the most thorough sources that presents irregular troops in service of Austria, whose assignment was to defend border area from Turkish attacks.
