War, Resources and Morality: Sweden 1740–1770

2018 (English)In: The war within: private interests and the fiscal state in early-modern Europe / [ed] Joël Félix; Anne Dubet, Cham, Switzerland: Palgrave Macmillan, 2018, 1, p. 229-256Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this chapter, the Swedish state’s war efforts in 1741–1743 are compared with Sweden’s participation during the Seven Years’ War (1757–1762). More specifically, it examines the political discussions before the wars, but also the actions of the procurement commissions set up to oversee the mobilization of resources before and during the wars. Moreover, the chapter explores how the members of the Diet assessed the actions of leading officers, as well as the activities of the political leadership and key administrators during and after the military campaigns. A key question in the analysis is how members of the procurement commissions and the politicians, who scrutinized the actions of the military and political leadership, handled issues of accountability. By examining these issues we gain a better understanding of how discourses about the relationships between private and public interests affected how resources were mobilized in a European middle ranking power.
