This memoir is fascinating in providing an elite view of the social and legal problems caused by the war right from the start. I believe though I have not seen the entire work that the author was probably a military lawyer affiliated or even in the army. War crimes, atrocities, refugees, ethnic minorities, cossacks, social history are just some of the war related topics dealt with in a highly literate (undoubtedly polished or emigre) memoir. Highly recommended.
