A book titled HE General-Aide, dealing with General-Aide Huseyn Khan Nakhchivanskiy, one of the last legendary knights of Russian Empire, who served with honor and loyalty to throne and empire, has been published in Moscow with support from the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, Azerbaijani MP Elmira Akhundova told Trend.
The book was written by Prof. Rudolf Ivanov, an outstanding Russian historian involved in Caucasus history, a member of the Union of Writers and Russian Union of Journalists, which is author of 23 books and around 200 articles. His works cover history of the Russian Empire and Caucasus, as well as books dedicated to the history of Caucasus nations, heroism of the representatives of the Caucasus nations and their role in defense and prosperity of the Russian Empire.
Heroism by Azerbaijani general aide of the Russian army, Huseyn Khan Nakhchivanskiy, who remained loyal to the military oath, Char and Motherland till the end actually admired the Russian historian, Akhundova underlined. His life and death circumstances were for the first time investigated in Ivanovs book. It is very valuable that the Russian scientist revives the glorious pages of the Russian military history linked with Azerbaijan, Azerbaijani MP underscored. It reveals close relationships between Azerbaijani and Russian culture and history, which had been common over almost 300 years.
According to Akhundova, the Heydar Aliyev Foundation and especially, Mehriban Aliyeva the President of the Foundation, who appreciated Ivanovs works, undertook all care needed for the publication of the book. In January 2006 the Foundation organized the scientists tour of Azerbaijan and presentation of another book Bayazet: Truth and Lie.
In the foreword of the new book HE General-Aide the author in particular notes the merits of the UNESCO Good Will Ambassador, MP Mehriban Aliyeva, in the publication of the book.
The writers plans also include creation of a trilogy on dynasty of Nakhchivan Khans.
Akhundova also announced that at present Ivanov is in Nakhchivan to get closely familiar with this region, while in a few days his 75th anniversary will be marked in solemn ceremony to be staged with the patronage of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation.
