Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.2in.This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1894 edition. Excerpt: . . . CHAPTER XII THE FALL OF PLEVNA TILL stiff and sore, I rode slowly back towards Plevna, spending a night in Lukovitza by the way. Passing from the road to the house in which I intended to sleep, I heard a voice calling to me Effendi! Effendi!; and entering the cottage whence came the call I found there a young Turkish farmer whom I had often met on the Danube while voyaging between Rustchuk and Braila. The poor fellow, who wore the Zouave uniform of the Turkish regulars, told me that he had been wounded in the leg in the fighting before Plevna in September and had been sent out of Plevna in one of the convoys of wounded which Osman had despatched while the communication remained open. While passing through Lukovitza he had been recognised by a Bulgarian family who owed him some kindness, and who took him into their house and nursed him with great care. He was now convalescent but was in great trouble as to his future, his chief apprehension being lest he should be taken prisoner by the Russians. He could speak Bulgarian fluently and I suggested that he should make his way across country to his own people about Rasgrad, where he would find no Russians. But, Effendi! he replied, how can I travel through Bulgaria in this uniform For a trifle I bought for him a Bulgarian suit from the head of the family who had befriended him so kindly, and gave him a pittance to serve him as marching money. He started next morning by way of Loftcha, reached his home in safety, and came to Rustchuk to thank me soon after the close of the war. When I reached Brestovatz I found that Skobeleffs headquarters had been removed to the village of Ustendol, about three-quarters of a mile south-west from Brestovatz and better sheltered from the Turkish. . .

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Czar and Sultan: The Adventures of a British Lad in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78 The materials for this narrative are taken from several sources; from the admirable war letters written to the Daily News during the Russo-Turkish campaign by my brilliant colleagues Messrs. MacGahan and Millett, the former of whom fell a victim to its hardships; from the History of the War written by Captain F.V. Greene, the United States Military Attache with the Russian Headquarters, who was in the field throughout the war and whose work is the standard authority; from Mr. Nemirovitch-Dantchenko s interesting and vivid Personal Reminiscences of General Skobeleff; from the late Valentine Baker Pasha s War in Bulgaria; and from sundry Russian narratives and reminiscences. I have to a considerable extent utilised some personal experiences of my own, and have drawn occasionally on my correspondence to the Daily News, a newspaper to which I owe what of success may have attended a career of some activity and variety.
