  1. Sorry for offtop... Do you have any information about the actions of the Krassau's corp and Stanislaw Leszczynski's troops in Poland and Lithuania during the 1709 campaign, please?

  2. Enspannare company was a general-quartermeiseter's company, mounted guides

    Yes, I have some info about 1709 campaign in Poland & Lithuania. It's a part from Wimmer's book about Poland in GNW & materials about Russian operations in Poland. Plus info about Swedish troops (composition, strength, etc.) What are you the most interested in?

  3. In General, I am interested by the total number of troops of Leszczynski-Krassau in Poland and Sapiega in Lithuania and from the opposite side by the troops of Goltz and Sandomierz Confederation and their places of deployment in 1709.
