Rasplata (The Reckoning)
"'Rasplata' in no way contains 'reminiscences, ' but is simply the diary of an eye-witness, presented in the form of a narrative ... I [Commander Semenoff] kept a diary from January 30, 1904 to December 19, 1906 (even a little longer), and made daily entries, on specially important days even hourly. Everything I tell of here is based on the data of my diary"--Author's preface.
