This early 19th-century book by Robert T Wilson covers military and political history of Russia through the year 1817. “A Sketch of the Military of Russia” serves as an English tool for American readers who were uncertain about the political and despotic decision-making of the Tsar of Russia. This book was written during the reign of Alexander I. The following quotes summarizes the stance taken toward Emperor Alexander:

“Alexander now wields the huge scepter of Russia. His philosophical views have indeed been enfeebled by pernicious advisers, but those who have known him in other days still cling to the hope that he will not substitute an unfeeling policy, of which the pillars are tyranny, ignorance and fanaticism.”

 

This book spoke to the fears of the Russian people but also to that of Americans. Wilson creates even more unsettledness by comparing ancient dynasties, such as the Greek and Byzantines, and how their demise was brought on by tyrannical leadership.

 

In addition to the fascinating contents on Russia and the Napoleonic Wars, this book features a folding map of Russia.
