CHARLES X'S WARS: Volume 1 - Armies of the Swedish Deluge, 1655-1660

CHARLES X'S WARS: Volume 1 - Armies of the Swedish Deluge, 1655-1660
by von Essen, Michael Fredholm

1-229111

Describes and analyses the 'Swedish Deluge' (potop szwedski) -- the devastating 1655-1660 wars fought between Sweden, the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Brandenburg-Prussia, Muscovite Russia, Transylvania, Cossack Ukraine, the Tatar Khanate of Crimea, and the Holy Roman Empire during the reign of Swedish King Charles X Gustavus.

Focuses on the Swedish-Commonwealth war, which provoked the political and military collapse of the Commonwealth. However, since this conflict cannot be disentangled from the simultaneous wars between the Commonwealth and Muscovy, from 1654 to 1667, and between Sweden and Muscovy, from 1656 to 1661, both are described as well. Meanwhile, the Ukrainian cossacks fought for freedom from what they perceived as the oppression of the Commonwealth.

Explains the continued development of the Swedish Army after the Thirty Years' War and provides full details on the dissimilar military systems of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Brandenburg-Prussia, Muscovite Russia, Cossack Ukraine, Transylvania, the Crimean Tatar Khanate, and the Imperial expeditionary forces engaged in the Swedish Deluge.

By invading the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, King Charles, an experienced former general from the Thirty Years' War, saw an opportunity to put an end to the Polish King's claim to the Swedish throne and to gain additional territories which would enable him to control the Baltic Sea maritime trade.
