Sweden was often in conflict with Russia, and countless were the battles that was fought between the countries. Even today Sweden looks upon Russia with suspicion (and vice versa of course). This is exemplified in an illustrated book, the exciting topic when the Russians in the early 1700s devastated and burned large parts of the Swedish Baltic coast line. Norrkoping, in particular, was hit hard since practically the whole town disappeared in the flames. The basic story (the summary) are historically accurate with names and places and people that were prominent. However, the story itself a fiction with exciting and dramatic events.

The story is structured as a so-called. "Illustrated Classics" series (comics) without the balloons, but with the book text in compressed form.
