About this title

Synopsis:

"Hadji Murad" was Tolstoy's last novel. It is a narrative based on actual events that occurred during the Russian war with the Chechens in 1850s Russia. Tolstoy enlisted in the Russian army and saw first hand the brutality of this war. "Hadji Murad" is the story of its central character. A soldier on the Chechen side who breaks ranks and flees to the side of the Russians. Months later Hadji returns to try and rescue his imprisoned family with tragic consequences. "Hadji Murad" is a classic tale in which Tolstoy brilliantly exhibits the brutality and senselessness of war.

From the Inside Flap:

In 1851 Leo Tolstoy enlisted in the Russian army and was sent to the Caucasus to help defeat the Chechens. During this war a great Avar chieftain, Hadji Murad, broke with the Chechen leader Shamil and fled to the Russians for safety. Months later, while attempting to rescue his family from Shamil's prison, Hadji Murad was pursued by those he had betrayed and, after fighting the most heroic battle of his life, was killed.
Tolstoy, witness to many of the events leading to Hadji Murad's death, set down this story with painstaking accuracy to preserve for future generations the horror, nobility, and destruction inherent in war.
