comment Did any nation have a demonstrable qualitative advantage in their soldiers of the 18th century, and how did they achieve this?
Sweden became a "big time military power" during the 30 Years' war based on French subsidies. Yes, it "punched above its weight" but its taste of "Great Power" status caused it to overreach later. During Queen Anne's War, either France or Britain would have gladly paid for their services, but they preferred war with Peter the Great instead.
