Part biography, part historical account, this first edition work gives insight into the life of Imam Shamil, the political, military, and spiritual leader of Caucasian resistance to Imperial Russia in the 1800s.
With chapters on the horsemanship, religious education and domestic life of Shamil, alongside an account of the Circassian mode of warfare, the invasion of the Kabardas and the seige of Akhulgo.
This is the work of John Milton Mackie, an American writer who specialized in a wide range of topics, from German history and literature to the life of Tai-Ping-Wang, Chief of the Chinese Insurrection.
