Doppelsoldner Army

Historical Description[]

Doppelsöldner were an elite class of Landsknecht, German mercenaries widely employed during the Renaissance. Their name literally mean 'double-soldier' as they were entitled to double pay. While the pike were perferred by most Landsknehts, some doppelsöldner wielded massive two-handed sword historically called doppelhanders or bidenhanders (better known today as zweihanders). Front-line soldier used these surprisingly light greatswords to create hole in pike wall by knocking aside enemy polearms or even looping off the upsecured head of lower-quality weapons. Many bidenhanders also had secondary grips above the crossguard to allow for controlled thrusting attack as well as chopping swings
