seen on Ebay Uk this book in Russian, pity not in English , seller in Latvia, anyone seen a copy ??

cheers Old John

The book is dedicated to one of the most famous, but at the same time and little-studied pages of the Great Northern War of 1700–1721. - The fate of the Russian auxiliary corps in the Polish-Saxon service in 1704–1707. and his participation in the unsuccessful battle at Fraustadt on February 13, 1706. The introduction of new archival materials into the scientific circulation, as well as the use of foreign sources, allowed the corps to be restored captivity at Fraustadt.

The book is intended for all those interested in the history of the Great Northern War of 1700–1721

You probably know this already but I understand that the author runs this fantastic blog:
http://rusmilhist.blogspot.com/

He has already posted considerable information about this subject on the blog - the amazing
translate facilities on the web come to your rescue if, like me, you don't speak Russian...

I would also love to see this book in English but am delighted that we are starting to see books
appearing on this subject (the Helion series is an obvious example).

Yes a great informative blog indeed, just spent a couple of hours going through the blog, found quite a bit of info, agree it would be good to see more books on the subjects, and as you say Helion has published some useful works
