Russian Grenadiers and Infantry 1799-1815
Fantastica serie che costituisce per gli storici e gli appassionati una ricca fonte di informazioni su armi, armamenti, addestramento e motivazioni dei più famosi combattenti del mondo; dal passato al presente.
This title provides a comprehensive and vivid account of life in the Russian infantry at the 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 Although hopelessly outdated at the outbreak of war in 1799, the army underwent radical changes and modernisation after Czar Paul I's murder. This book details recruitment and training procedures, tactics and equipment, and daily life both at home and on campaign. The experiences of the average soldier are examined, and several commonly held assumptions regarding his character and motivation are reassessed.
