Overview

Captain Vladimir Littauer served in the Russian Imperial Cavalry from 1911 to 1920. After the revolution he escaped via Siberia and Japan to the United States. His autobiography describes his experiences as a cadet at the Nicholas Cavalry School in St. Petersburg to his commissioning in the Sumsky Hussars (who celebrated their 250th anniversary in 1901), through the hard struggles of World War I and the harder times of the Revolution.

With quiet humor, Littauer describes the world of the cavalry from schooling through the extensive cavalry operations of World War I's eastern front. (The Russian army entered that war with no fewer than 24 full divisions of cavalry.)

This book is a treat for all students of cavalry warfare, European military history, and life in the Czar's army in its last decades.
