This rare account is Mehmet Arif Olcen's story of what followed: his three years as a prisoner of war in the small town of Varnavino, east of Moscow on the Vetluga River."--BOOK JACKET. "Mehmet Arif and the other prisoners were given considerable freedom to form friendships with the local people, and Mehmet, who recorded his feelings and observations in a pocket notebook, was a keen observer. His descriptions of the hardships of the war in a remote Russian town present a vivid and compassionate picture of the ordinary people during the last years of Czarist Russia and of the chaos they experienced during the Bolshevik Revolution."--BOOK JACKET. "More than a personal reminiscence, Vetluga Memoir is also a historical document that describes a lost episode during World War I - the political and strategic mistakes made by the Ottoman Third Army - and the final days of one corner of the Czarist empire. The author's son, Ali Nejat, offers an overview of the problems that the Ottoman Empire faced in the years preceding the war and notes that Mehmet's insights about Bolshevism foretell, with ironic commentary, the recent collapse of the Soviet Union."--BOOK JACKET." ;
