Thread Name: Origin: High Germany
Subject: RE: High Germany, who wrote it?
Well, any English or Scottish regiments with Gustavus Adolphus in the 30 Years War (1618-1648) would probably have been mercenaries. I think the verse about pressing men out of England to fight in Higher Germany is very iffy.....
