Review by jle1934 (posted on 10-Mar-2005)

A privileged officer in Catherine the Great's 1700's Russian Army was sent to a distant fort for diciplinary reasons. On the way there, he saved a half frozen man from sure death, since he was lost and buried in snow during a storm.

At the new garrison, against orders, he fought a duel with his foe. He fell in love with the Captain's daughter, who stood by him when he was accused of being a traitor. His foe was also in love with her.

During all this time the man whose life he saved was calling himself Czar Peter (the real Czar having been dead ten years) but he was really Pugachev, a Cossack, who was leading a revolt in an attempt to overthrow Catherine. He had amassed a huge Army of supporters from the down trodden Cossacks. He was a clever leader but proved no match for Catherine's soldiers.
