Northern wars in the flintlock era

There are visual similarities between the Great Northern War and the various French and Indian wars. Two empires fighting it out over a wintry landscape - this image underlines some of those connections. Don't think Canadians used skis but I might be wrong. I am going to try and persuade my wife Susan to make me a karpus/tapabord so if it snows here I can make a photo reconstruction but if any of you have any winter warfare photos feel free to send them in.
The image is from Acedia Press - people who publish a great range of titles on the Scanian Wars and GNW.
