Volume one of a two-volume set, "The Military History of Tsarist Russia" is the first overview in English of the rise of the armed forces in Russia, from the Muscovite army of the 15th century through the reforms, expansions, and westernization of Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, and the victory over Napoleon in 1812-1815. Essays also highlight the ideological conflict between Westernization and Russiafication, and the revolution that brought down the Romanovs in 1917. The eleven chapters by acknowledged experts provide a fine introduction to Russian military and naval history.
