This is one of the better Osprey titles. The text is great. It explains the organization of the Polish army during this period. It gives suitable attention to the various forms of cavalry from winged hussars to cossacks. It also leaves some space for the foot and artillery in Polish units. I'm less wild about the mix of illustrations. While they are beautiful, as one should expect from this series, my personal feeling is they aren't as varied as they could be--and thus are less useful than they could be. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 085045736X, Paperback)

Few people will realise that at one time the Polish state was one of Europe's great powers. One of the chief instruments of her success was undoubtedly her army, which though small can claim many accomplishments and major successes in the 16th and 17th centuries. Richard Brzezinski redresses this imbalance by providing a portrait of Polish armies from 1569-1696, detailing their history, organisation, arms, armour, insignia and dress, accompanied by numerous illustrations and eight superb full page colour plates by Angus McBride.
