Zurich Militia, Old Zurich War, Zurich Switzerland, Guilds Zurich, Swiss warfare in the Middle Ages, Switzerland history
Switzerland was involved in a civil war from 1440 to 1446. To defend itself, Zurich called out its militia. In the militia records from 1442, the entire structure of the force can be reconstructed. A list of over two thousand names of the militiamen is presented. This includes their occupations, area of residence, the weapons they carried, and where they stood in the Zurich battle formation.
