Sebastopol Sketches Leo Tolstoy

(Image - Tolstoy in 1856)
I haven't had much from the Russian side of the Crimea - mostly as I don't speak Russian but some works are such that they are translated - one being this series of short stories by the famed Leo Tolstoy who commanded a battery at the siege of Sebastopol. Google books version (limited preview). Printed copies of this book are pretty cheap so maybe track one down if you fancy a classic read.
