This is the follow on volume to the very good first volume. There simply isn't enough here to justify a separate volume. The book is intended to be about foreign troops in the the Polish army, but very little space is devoted to this. The book provides some follow on details regarding troop types covered in volume one, but space is devoted to explanation of the plates before it reaches mid-way in the text. I like the plates. There are some really good ones of Tartars and Cossacks, but they really don't redeem the shortcomings in the text. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0850457440, Paperback)

The 17th century Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth was almost as varied as modern America. Alongside Slavs lived Lithuanians and other Balts, Germans, Tatars, Armenian merchants, Jewish traders, and even a remarkably large populations of Scots. This variety of cultures had a strong influence on the Polish army. Along with the predominantly Polish and Lithuanian 'winged' hussars served numerous foreigners from both within and outside the Commonwealth: Tatars and Cossacks, Wallachians, Transylvanians, Moldavians, Hungarians, Serbians and Albanians; and from the West, French, Italians, Dutch, Walloons, Swedes and Scots. Richard Brzezinski's companion volume to Men-at-Arms 184 completes his fascinating examination of Polish armies from 1569-1696.
