AGAINST THE DELUGE: Polish and Lithuanian Armies During the War Against Sweden 1655-1660

AGAINST THE DELUGE: Polish and Lithuanian Armies During the War Against Sweden 1655-1660
by Brennan, Patrick and Dylan Brennan

1-235740

In-depth study of Polish and Lithuanian armies fighting during 'The Deluge' -- 1655 Second Northern War pitting the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth against Sweden. Explains unique system of recruiting, organizing, and commanding troops in the Commonwealth, from regular army, through levy of nobility, to forces owned by king and magnates. Each formation, from famous winged hussars to ad hoc raised units of peasant partisans, is described with much detail as are the most important leaders.

Also covers the logistical aspect, from the way that armies were financed to how they were equipped, clothed, and fed. Main battles of the war, including three-days long battle of Warsaw in 1656 and selected siege operations, are depicted in separate chapters. Includes 83 b/w illustrations, 9 b/w photos, 36 color illustrations, 44 maps, and 52 tables.

In writing this volume, the authors used large number of primary sources, such as diaries and letters by Polish and Swedish soldiers, most never before available in English. Associated iconography was chosen with great care, to present depiction of the commanders, troops and battles, all from period plus Polish and Lithuanian flags that survived in Swedish collections.
