I thought I might advertise my blog on Russian history for those here who are not frequent guests at Sima Qian Studio :).

De Rebus Antiquis Et Novis — Articles about history. Articles about Russia. Sometimes both.

Here's a little selection of my favorite articles:

January 11 in Russian history : about general Nikolay Slashchev, one of the less known figures of the Russian Civil War and why he is less known.

February 8 in Russian history : escape of Soviet POWs from Nazi concentration camp on a stolen bomber.

February 15 in Russian history : Soviet decree "On prohibition of marriages between citizens of the USSR and foreigners" and how it affected two families.

A little about history of Ossetia and Georgia

Disappointed by Richard Pipes : a review of the The Russian Revolution by R.Pipes.

Thanks, Seko. Had it not been for SMQ Studio, I would've been hanging around here, at AE :). I love this forum.

The article on the Russian PoWs hijacking the plane was a most fascinating read, thank you for this, mind.
It is not the challenges a people face which define who they are, but rather the way in which they respond to those challenges.
