Description
 
This is the true history of the war made famous by the book and movie
Taras Bulba and Henry Sienkiewicz's historical novels.  This is the
story of a peasant revolt, but the peasants were the ferocious Cossack
warriors of the steppes, who had as their allies the Tartars and the
Ottomans.  The original book was published in 1667 and its author was,
apparently, an eyewitness to these events, or at least had the
opportunity to speak to the people who were actively involved in them. Written by Pierre Chevalier and translated By George Nafziger
