Re: My Review of the great northern war compendium

According to Oscar Sjostrom's meticulously researched book on Fraustadt, there were 6500 prisoners from the Saxon army. 2400 prisoners who were "Bavarian," Swiss and French entered Swedish service. This of course was a common practice at the time. Many of these served at Kaliscz, where most of the s...

Re: Russian Swedish standards

I believe that in both armies, the white color was carried by the first, or as the Swedish termed it, "livbattalion." Pretty sure there was only one livfana per regiment.

Re: Torn

I agree with Barry. I have two battalions of Russians painted as Saxons. By switching out the command stand, I can also use them as red-coated Russians. While I don't believe there were any field actions where Russian, Saxon and Danish troops fought together, the three armies worked in concert in 17...

Great Northern War Compendium

I got my copy and I think that it is the best introduction to the GNW in English, without question. It is two "coffee table" sized volume with over 600 pages in full color, with many hundreds of pictures and maps. Of course there are articles on the well-known battles, but also on many obscure ones....

Re: Russian standards...

I've not look at every Russian and Saxon flag in the Swedish trophy collection that is online, but of the many I have looked at none of the Russian flags have tassels, and neither to the Saxon ones. That does not mean that they could not have been removed after their capture, but there are other fla...

Re: GNW: Swedes and Russians use of the pike

The Saxons, Danes and Prussians did not carry pikes, although I believe that the Danish infantry was supposed to have been equipped with pikes late in the war. They did not have them at Gadebusch or Helsingborg. The Polish infantry was usually involved in garrison duty and rarely, if ever, was invol...

Re: GNW: Swedes and Russians use of the pike

I believe that Tacitus has a post somewhere here on this forum that says that the Russian regulations that were in effect in 1708 provided that every other man in the first rank was to be a pikeman. Since there were four ranks, this means that one in eight were pikemen. I believe that Tacitus says t...

Re: TYW Saxon Flags & Standards

Of course, at Gunter has mentioned previously, there is
also "Das Kursächsische Heer im Dreißigjährigen Krieg" which is spectacular.
