Cossacks of the Brotherhood

The Zaporog Kosh of the Dniepr River


George Patrick March

This is the fascinating story of a remarkable brotherhood of Cossacks spanning 200 turbulent years in southeastern Europe. Their society dominated the lower Dniepr River against the threat of Poles, Lithuanians, Russians, Tatars and Turks until being totally expunged by decree of Empress Catherine the Great in 1775. This scholarly work is the first history of the Zaporog Cossacks to be published in the English language.
