Summary

The "Potsdamer Wachparade" - Prussian grenadiers advancing.

The term "Potsdamer Wachparade" was just a derogatory appellation used in the enemy camp to designate the whole Prussian army. This term was picked up and proudly accepted by the Prussians. "Hey, look! Even such a tiny outfit as our 'Wachparade' can defeat huge armies!"
