Osprey Men-at-Arms 264 : Peter the Great's Army (2) : Cavalry

The administrative zeal of Tsar Peter I was such that his army was welded into a surprisingly effective military machine for its time. This was achieved by full support from an economy and administrative system which, like those of Frederick the Great's Prussia, existed primarily to maintain the armed forces. By the time of his death in 1725 Peter the Great had placed Russia among the foremost European powers, and had created a military system that has influenced the European balance of power until the present day. In this companion book to Men-at-Arms 260 : Peter the Great's Army (1) : Infantry, Angus Konstam discusses Tsar Peter's cavalry, both the regular troops and irregular forces such as the Cossacks, exploring their composition and effectiveness, and also outlines the development of the Russian train of artillery. The text is complemented by a multitude of illustrations and photographs, including eight full page colour plates by David Rickman.
