Note: the table of contents is not final; it will definitely expand, not shrink. We show skirmishes and divisions being grouped as “old” and “new” to make it easier for you to spot the new ones. It will be presented in the book in slightly different manner.

You may notice that there are some currently available pdfs that are missing here: Danes, Swedes from border of Halland and Scania, ‘The Invincibles’, Czarniecki’s division and Piaseczyński’s regiment. The reason is very simple – they will be published as a part of  another book, which will focus on war in Denmark and Swedish Pomerania. Our reliable Michał ‘Kadrinazi’ Paradowski gathered plenty of materials and it’s already working on it. We want to assure you that it will be worth a wait, even if You don’t play brave Danes.

Anticipating the question – the release date of the publication has not been determined yet.
As of the release date for the “Armies of By Fire and Sword” – we aim for December 2015. For the first time in history of BFaS we would like to publish both Polish and English versions at the same time
