Description
Novel, relating to the Russkaia Osvoboditel'naia Armiia. Includes some correspondence relating to publication.
Background
Konstantin Stavrovich Cherkassov was born Konstantin Lagoridov in Taganrog, Russia, on March 2, 1921. He adopted his new name after World War II to escape forced repatriation to the Soviet Union. During the war, he joined General Andrei Vlasov’s Russkaia osvoboditel’naia armiia and was a captain in the Fifth Cossack Division under the command of General Ivan Kononov, serving later as reconnaissance officer. In the postwar period, Cherkassov lived in a displaced persons camp in Parsch, Austria, where he assumed the last name Dulshers. In 1949 he immigrated to Australia, where he worked as a gardener. The collection contains Cherkassov’s novel “Mezhdu dvukh ognei” in manuscript form, for which he drew on his firsthand experience as a member of the Russian Liberation Army (Russkaia osvoboditel’naia armiia).
