RUSSIAN ARMY IN THE REIGN
OF EMPRESS ANNA 1730-40.
by Vladimir "Gromoboy"
This site reflects my interest in Russian Military History during the reign of Empress Anna (14.01.1730 - 17.10.1740). During her government Russian army took part in 3 wars: War of Polish Succession 1733-35, War with Turkey 1736-39 & War with Sweden 1741-43. The last war began after Anna's death & could be related to her reign with some reserve, but its roots were in the previous government.
The reign of Empress Anna is one of the less known periods in the Russian history, & I would like to show a development of the Russian military forces under successors of the Peter the Great. This is my first attempt in web-building & the most of the site is still under construction.
