First edition of the scarce English translation of this journal written by the Russian Lieutenant Tverdokhlyebov during WW 1, and published for anti-propaganda purposes against the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire.
It's described the publishing purpose of this book as "Certain passages of this journal show up the atrocities committed by the Armenians towards the Mussulmans. Those who do have further details on the oppression and iniquities so cruelly inflicted on the Turks may advantageously consult the memoirs of Lieutenant-Colonel Twerdo Khlebof, commander of the 2nd Russian Fortress Artillery Regiment at Erzeroum, recently published.".
