Glory won over the roar of cannon fire, peace exists simply as a time to prepare for the next battle. A soldier in a militarily-advanced nation, Baltzar quickly advanced in rank. However, his career takes a sudden turn when he is reassigned as an adviser at a military school in a neighboring allied nation. Faced with little military power, untrained students, and civilian opposition to firearms, will Major Baltzar be able to win over the soldiers and civilians?

Story - Set in what I presume is the 19th century, somewhere in Central Europe. The fictional country of Weißen is looking to expand its borders and sees Baselland as a target to incorporate. An aspiring major Balzer has been ordered to push forward with military reform in Baselland, but he has to overcome many obstacles in fulfilling his mission. An exciting story full of the potential to change the balance of power and influence every aspect of life.

Art - The characters are a bit cartoony but the backgrounds and weapons are all very detailed. I liked the clean look.

Character - Balzer is read more

A refreshing mix of politics, school life, and warfare, with some fantastic attention to detail, largely realistic universe, and a capable MC.

This manga follows the story of a young, prestigious and able officer, Bernd Balzer, who has quickly risen through the ranks of his country's (Weiben's) military. For his latest task, he is assigned to a neighboring country who has recently formed a pact with his own as a military instructor. This is not only done to aid their ally, but also increase his home country's influence through political means. The MC soon becomes involved in a series of political intrigues and actual conflict as read more

Here is an interesting manga about what seems to be a time around the end of the 19th century in europe. It's not an historical manga and it's not our world either, but the main character, the Major Balzer, seems to an officier in a german like country ( name of towns, and others characters). The weaponery is that of the armies around 1870, so if you like this era, this manga is for you!

Major Balzer, promising young officer of the glorious Weiben army, is sent to improve the army of their new ally and neighboor, Baselland. Even if he isn't satisfied with this order, read more

You know how Legend of the Galactic Heroes is Napoleonic Wars but in space? Well, Gunka no Balzar is the Franco-Prussian War but in the Franco-Prussian War. And it's not the only parallel. GnB is pretty much the manga version of LoGH. Absolutely sublime.

From a historical and political point of view, Baltzar is incredibly fascinating, because lesser stories would try to shoehorn in modern day ideas and morality, but instead it shows even Great War -era thinking as futuristic dreaming. Actually, it's so authentic, I'm even wondering if the author is a bit of a relic himself, heh. Not that I would mind, that read more
