leaders did little to suppress. As was usual in the first
half of the 17th century, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania did
not keep a standing army, only garrison units in Smolensk
and Daugpilis. Whenever the threat of war loomed, it had to
form a new army from scratch each time, so the private
armies of the nobles were always the first to go into war,
and were only later joined by conscripts.
