Overview

Red Cavalry is a collection of short stories by Russian
author Isaac Babel about the 1st Cavalry Army. The stories take
place during the Polish-Soviet war and are based on Babel's own
diary, which he maintained when he was a journalist assigned to the Semyon
Budyonny's First Cavalry Army. First published in the 1920s, the book was
one of the Russian people's first literary exposures to the dark, bitter reality
of the war. During the 1920's writers of fiction like Babel were given a
relatively good degree of freedom compared to the mass censorship and
totalitarianism that would follow Stalin's ascent to power, and certain
levels of criticism could even be published. But many of the stories were later
banned in the USSR until the 1980s, as they contain undertones critical of
the Revolution.
