PETER I - RUSSIAN ARMY
At this page we are collecting illustrations and text about the Russian
Army during the reign of Peter I. And in some cases the uniforms remained in
vogue through the reigns of his successors, Catherine I and Anna Ivanovna up to
1730. These pictures were photographed from the multi-volume series by
Viskovatov and then scanned. Please send comments and corrections to
