I Am A Chechen, By German Sadulaev, trans. Anna Gunin

Some of the finest novels in the Russian language are set in the Caucasus Mountains. Mikhail Lermontov, Lev Tolstoy and Alexander Pushkin were just some of the writers who all but invented Russian literature against the backdrop of the turbulent south.

That is because their viewpoint is the only one we have. The ordinary Chechen's opinion about the Tsarist armies' conquest of their homeland, or about anything else, is unrecorded except in the imagination of the great Russian writers.
