Tatul Hakobyan explores the genesis and daring pursuits of the Special Striking Division that operated under the personal authority of General Antranig Ozanian—and outside the control of the First Republic—as chronicled by Yeghishe Catchouny. Discover the parallel movements of the volunteer forces under the command of Vagharshag Shahinian.

He held his sword tightly in his hand and never let it go. The powerful clashes of his sword echoed strongly in the mountains and valleys of Armenia, inspiring the survivors of the carnage with courage to fight back for freedom. — excerpt from book jacket
