Russian Grenadiers and Infantry 1799-1815 by Laurence Spring

Book Description

This title provides a fact-filled and vivid account of life in the Russian infantry at the turbulent turn of the 19th century - a time when the Russian Army was arguably one of the most important in the world. Although hopelessly outdated at the outbreak of the European war of 1799, after Czar Paul I's murder the army underwent radical changes and modernization. This book details recruitment and training procedures, military tactics and equipment and daily life both at home and on campaign. The common and extraordinary experiences of the ordinary soldier are examined and several commonly held assumptions regarding his character and motivations dismissed.

French Guardsman vs Russian Jaeger by Laurence Spring French Guardsman vs Russian Jaeger, Paperback (November 2013)

The Russian Jaeger regiments and Napoleon's Young Guard clashed repeatedly during the campaigns of 1812-14. This book traces the evolving trial of strength between Russia's Jaeger arm and France's Young Guardsmen at the height of the Napoleonic Wars.

1812 by Laurence Spring 1812, Hardback (October 2009)

Much has been written on Napolean's ill-fated invasion of Russia from the Grande Armee's point of view, their bold crossing of the River Nieman and capture of Moscow, and their eventual destruction by the Russian winter. This book looks at the conflict from a Russian standpoint, using sources from over forty eyewitness accounts.
