Alexey Petrovich Yermolov (1777-1861) – a figure almost mystical. On the battlefield he did such miracles of bravery that the soldiers were firmly convinced that he spoke from the bullets. Ermolov many managed to do for Russia, but could have done even more if not for the intrigue surrounding his name leading up to the next disgrace during the reign of Nicholas I. To the contemporaries of Moses always remained a great hero, a knight without fear and without reproach. Is it really so? What about the conquest of the Caucasus and the stigma of a brutal colonizer? After reading this book, you'll be able to form an opinion about this amazing person. The present edition is illustrated with engravings and paintings of the XIX century.
