A collaboration with Russian language specialists, Dr. Nicholas Gossett and Ekaterina Zakharova, the CWTP makes the Russian experience of the Crimean War accessible to Anglophone students and scholars by translating key documents of the Crimean War from Russian into English.
- F. K. Zatler in the Court of Public Opinion
Army veteran and military philosopher, Zatler organized Russian provisions during the Crimean War. He became a public scapegoat for larger systematic failures in Russia’s supply chain, and went to prison. He wrote his way to freedom with a multiple-volume study of food and war and went on to co-author Russia’s modern military reform.
