Hadji Murad was Tolstoy's favorite story --a precious work of art. The tale is about the last days of the great Chechen warrior Hadji Murad who spent his courageous life fighting for his beliefs and for the independence of his people against the Russians only to be betrayed by his own. This tale is truly one of the greatest stories ever written.
