Praise for The Russian Officer Corps

"The Russian Officer Corps is a marvel of research and... a fascinating look into a diverse group of personalities, many of whom were often as colorful as any of their French, British, or Prussian counterparts. As a reference source, it can in more ways than one breathe fresh life into the Napoleonic buff's studies of the emperor's campaigns against the Tsar."

- Jon Guttman,
Military History Magazine

"[A] trove of fabulous new information for Napoleonic students. The Russian Officer Corps of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, 1792 to 1815 is a marvelous addition to Napoleonic knowledge and Alexander Mikaberidze should be exceedingly proud of his efforts. A must-have."

- Richard Moore,

"This splendid book is a godsend... The essential handbook for all those interested in the subject."


"An absolute must-have reference for academic libraries and students of Russian and Napoleonic wars."

- Midwest Book Review

"This book is a great piece of writing, an excellent encyclopedia of the officers of the Russian army... A marvelous achievement."

- Mikael Andersson,
Napoleonic Wars

"This superb volume is a must for any student of the Napoleonic Wars... Books such as these, at the level of scholarship with which it is written, seldom come along. The author has compiled an unrivaled source of material on the Russian officer corps... The volume is thoroughly sourced and documented, and the endnotes, where appropriate, are most helpful... Seldom does one come across a book of this value, scholarship, and scope. The Russian Officer Corps is the definitive volume for the subject in English, and the author and publisher have done all of us a great service in presenting this outstanding volume to the public."

- Kevin F. Kiley,
author of Artillery of the Napoleonic Wars
