Full Description


This title provides a fact-filled and vivid account of life in the Russian infantry at the turbulent turn of the 19th century - a time when the Russian Army was arguably one of the most important in the world. Although hopelessly outdated at the outbreak of the European war of 1799, after Czar Paul I's murder the army underwent radical changes and modernization. This book details recruitment and training procedures, military tactics and equipment and daily life both at home and on campaign. The common and extraordinary experiences of the ordinary soldier are examined and several commonly held assumptions regarding his character and motivations dismissed.
