Re: Early Petrine Army

Thanks for sources. It does seem very difficult to get concrete information on this shadowy period in Russian military history. Regarding the "reiters".

Yes belated happy birthday, may your Saxons finally defeat the Swedish.
We defeated them already :wink: The Saxons survived, endured and have been on the Winning Side.
