Deutsch: Das altpreußische Infanterieregiment No. 6 wurde 1675 gegründet und bestand bis 1806, als es als Folge der preußischen Niederlage im Krieg gegen Frankreich aufgelöst wurde.
English: The Potsdam Giants was the Prussian infantry regiment No 6, composed of taller-than-average soldiers. The regiment was founded in 1675 and dissolved in 1806 after the Prussian defeat against Napoleon. Throughout the reign of the Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm I of Prussia (1688–1740) the unit was known as the "Potsdamer Riesengarde" ("giant guard of Potsdam") in German, but the Prussian population quickly nicknamed them the Lange Kerls ("long guys").
