The figure of Tsar Peter the Great dominated Russia in the 18th century. Within a few decades his reforms had brought about changes from which no section of Russian life remained immune, paving the way for Russia's emergence as a major military power. By the time of his death in 1725, the man who greeted the birth of his son with the exclamation 'another recruit' had forged a dominant European power, and his legacy is still felt today. In this first of two volumes, Angus Konstam examines the organisation, tactics, uniforms and equipment of Peter the Great's infantry troops, in a text complemented by a multitude of illustrations, including eight full page colour plates by David Rickman.Biografía del autor:
