Russia, 1762-1825: military power, the state, and the people

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
From 1762 through 1825, Russia was almost continually at war. Hartley (international history, London School of Economics) investigates the structure of the military in Russia and how a country with almost no infrastructure managed to win so many battles and expand its territory. She notes that, rather than develop a more structured central government Russia only became more entrenched in tradition. The military contact with other nationalities only reinforced the Russians' sense of their own identity. The invasion by Napoleon was the only war fought on Russian soil and it left an indelible mark on the mentality of the country that lasts to this day. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
