Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gustav ("Gurk") Krist was an Austrian adventurer, prisoner-of-war, carpet-dealer and author. His accounts of unmonitored journeys, in a politically closed and tightly-controlled Russian, and then Soviet Central Asia, offer a unique glimpse into the essentially unchanged Muslim Central Asia before Sovietization. The Viennese-born and educated Krist worked as a technician in Germany before being mobilised as a private in the Austro-Hungarian Army on the outbreak of war. Early in the war (November 1914) he was severely wounded and captured by the Russians at the San river defensive line on the Eastern front.show more
