1 Review
This interesting and informative book presents a picture of warriors quite different from today's flyover heroes and values diametrically opposed to the 'didn't inhale' crowd. Mr Feodoroff, a Cossack himself, offers us a detailed history of his people, including their politics, military afflictions, culture, ideology and philosophy, as well as their typical personality characteristics. A picture emerges quite at variance with the image projected by the media in the West. We are presented with rare illustrations and descriptions of a lifestyle filled with adventure and faith.
