A readable survey of the rise and fall of the Baltic countries in the 17th century that saw the the rise and containment of Sweden, the fall of Poland, and the emergence of Germany (Prussia) and Russia on the world stage. Superior leadership and organization allowed the Swedish (and later the Prussian) state to punch above its weight, an unsustainable strategy when faced with the limitless resources of Russia.

The book is based on a limited selection of secondary sources, has slightly erroneous maps and lacks a concluding chapter. ( )
