KIRKUS REVIEW

In the best tradition of folk tales, this story of the times of Alexander, Russian Emperor who defeated Napoleon, and of his Coassack chief, jealous of the name and fame of the Cossacks. Together they see the wonders of the western world -- and Platov scorns them, insisting that Russia can do better. A test is made with the steel flea-and Platov wins.
