Great article, I think it's probably the most informative piece that I have read on the subject. Thanks for taking the time to write it.

I should also mention an amusing typo I encountered. You wrote: " ...but in the 18th century it became a common solution for many, especially sons of Irish Gentlemen, to serve in French, Spanish, Australian, Italian, Polish and even Swedish armies..." I'm pretty sure you mean Austrian, not Australian. It would have been a long way for them to go.

Nit picking aside, great article. Thanks again.
