In 1795 the Russian army was as vast as the territory from which it was drawn. The text is actually very interesting, and the color plates are among the best I've ever seen. I'm especially glad to see that in this volume, Osprey has stayed away from its usual practice of filling up loads of space on officers and special units. Rather, the focus is on the common soldier in the ranks and color plates take you nicely through the evolution of uniforms and equipment that took place during this span of time.

Shelves: history, military-history, napoleonic-wars. This is the first time I read a MAA book with as a source of inspiration to paint an army, and I am pretty happy with it. It could certainly have more, but I suppose it is a good starting point.

During the Napoleonic era, Russia possessed a vast force of cavalry, forming a greater percentage than that of most European armies. This stemmed partly from their service against the Turks, who had huge numbers of troops, and partly from the fact that much Russian terrain was suitable for the manoeuvre of large bodies of cavalry

In 1795 the Russian army was as vast as the territory from which it was drawn. The College of War calculated that the regular army amounted to 541,741 men, plus 46,601 enrolled cossacks, and at least a further 100,000 irregular cavalry which could be mobilised in time of war. Inspired by the icons paraded by their priests before battle, the Russian infantry were capable of astonishing feats and total, blind obedience to orders. Philip Haythornwaite examines the organisation and uniforms of the remarkable Russian infantry troops who fought in the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815).

Outstanding work, really one of the very best Osprey Men-At-Arms books available. The text is actually very interesting, and the color plates are among the best I've ever seen. I'm especially glad to see that in this volume, Osprey has stayed away from its usual practice of filling up loads of space on officers and special units. Rather, the focus is on the common soldier in the ranks and color plates take you nicely through the evolution of uniforms and equipment that took place during this span of time. One missing element are details about flags and fanions (smaller flags carried at the company and batallion level).

Did not know much about this army during this period covered. After reading I learned from this book the uniforms and formation of this army. Combat history is also discussed on a limited bases. Good book for anyone wanting to know about this army. Good drawing on uniforms is a plus.

Really nice guides for painting!

18th & 19th century uniforms were ever-changing in Europe. This short, well illustrated guide is excellent for all interesteed persons that are not reasearching tiny details. Every detail of botton and sash is not covered, but a good overview is presented.
