This book is a jewel for anybody desiring to understand the organization of the military during the time Finland was part of Sweden. It explains in great detail the meaning of "indelningsverket", "indelt soldat", "rote", "rotebonde", "rusthåll" etc. It also has description of the formation of each Finnish regiment during this time and the terrible suffering the Finnish people and soldiers went through during the Great Nordic War.
