Konstantin Sergeevich Popov was a significant military historian and memorialist in the early twentieth century. Despite losing his left hand in combat early on during WWI, Popov continued to serve for a large portion of his life, and wrote prolifically about the Russian war effort from a first-hand perspective. In this book, Popov's regiment general, K. G. Bulgakov, offers his own comments on Popov's writings, which detail the battles undertaken during World War I by his regiment, His Majesty Mikhail Fyodorovich's 13th Yerevan Grenadier Regiment. Reviews of Popov's writings from the era praise the author for his rousing portrayal of the Russian Empire's military prowess; some critics even went so far as to suggest the book as prescribed reading for young men, so that they might familiarise themselves with the Russian Empire's great military history. This edition was published in 1957 by Anton, a Russian-owned publishing house based in Buenos Aires.
