Order of battle of the Russian army under the command of Field Marshall Alexander Borissovitch Buturlin encamped near Bunzelwitz (present-day Bolesławice) in Lower Silesia in August 1761.

  • General Gallitsin commanded the left wing of the first line
  • General Fermor commanded the right wing of the first line
  • General Chernichev commanded the left wing of the second line
  • General Dolgorukov commanded the right wing of the second line

N.B.: in the following order of battle, we have used a more normalized spelling than the Germanized forms (ex: Volguski instead of Wolguski) used by Tielke. However, for the names of the various generals, this spelling could be improved. Suggestions are welcome.
