Very Good Russian Miltary History Site
For those readers of "Wars of Louis Quatorze" who might have an interest in Russian military history, this is an excellent web site. Called "From Rus to Peter", it covers the span of Russian military history from roughly 900 AD to 1725 AD.
The site (written in English) has pull-down tabs covering biographies of famous leaders, battles of the era, specific tabs on the Army and the navy, Politics, and the General History as well as Military History. Some very good articles with accompanying charts, maps, illustrations and photography. The illustrations are Osprey-style and the photos are of modern-day reenactments. Overall, very nicely done, and a good "thumbnail" source (at worst) for a bit of Russian information.
