Synopsis

Synopsis

During the long and costly conflict known as the Great Northern War (1700-1721), Peter the Great and his newly formed Russian army, which was modelled on western European lines, defeated their Swedish counterparts, who were generally regarded as being the finest troops in Europe. Angus Konstam examines the development, equipment and organisation of the Russian army following the death of Peter the Great, and describes its emergence from three decades of experimentation and political involvement as a major military power during the Seven Years' War (1756-1763). This first of two volumes covers the Russian infantry, with its companion, Men-at-Arms 298, focusing on the cavalry.
