Davidov organized his notes on his partisan activities and cavalry raids during the 1812 and 1813 campaigns when his recollections were still vivid. He was not only a general of merit but a well-know poet with literary talent. He commanded cossacks and regular cavalry detachments that caused great loss to the retreating French army. This edition of his memoirs are edited and translated by Gregory Troubetzkoy.
