COSSACK BOYS - DVD

New

Loosely translated, Cossack means "free people." Beginning in the 15th century, freedom and the willingness to fight for it, are exactly what this unique Ukrainian clan has become famous for. Throughout their long and colorful history, the Cossacks have been challenged often and hard. First by Turks and Tartars, and later by the shackles of 20th century communist rule. But in the end, these former serfs and slaves have prevailed in their quest for self-rule and independence. Today, the Cossacks fight a new battle, one to preserve their legendary heritage of courage, physical endurance and comradeship. What better way to accomplish this than through the time-honored order of "from father to son."
