John Frederick Baddeley (July 1854 – Oxford, 16 February 1940) was a British traveller, scholar and journalist, best known by his works on Russia and the Caucasus region. He was educated at Wellington College, Berkshire. After visiting Russia for seven months in 1879, Baddeley became the St. Petersburg correspondent for the London Standard, and began a lifelong relationship with that country, travelling widely and writing several important books on its history. In the summer of 1900 he made his first of several journeys to Siberia and the Russian Far East.

The Russian conquest of the Caucasus mainly occurred between 1800 and 1864

The Russian conquest of the Caucasus mainly occurred between 1800 and 1864. In that era the Russian Empire expanded to control the region between the Black Sea and Caspian Sea, the territory that is modern Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and parts of Iran and Turkey, as well as the North Caucasus region of modern Russia. Multiple wars were fought against the local rulers of the regions, as well as the dominant powers, the Ottoman Empire and Persian Empire, for control.

This Elibron Classics book is a facsimile reprint of a 1908 edition by Longmans, Green, and Co., London, New York; Bombay, and Calcutta.

The Rollers of Vildar
In Forsyth’s 900-page history of the Caucasus Baddeley is the only book he regularly cites for the Russian conquest. From what I can see from reading footnotes this is the only proper book-length study in any language. Everything else is documents, journal articles or popular history. As you would expect from the date, this book belongs to the age of high imperialism. Like the best imperialists, he has a great deal of respect for the natives without fully understanding them. He describes brutality and treachery on both sides without being surprised. The first part is about the annexation of Georgia and the various wars to consolidate this bridgehead south of the mountains. The second part covers the Imam Shamil war in the eastern Caucasus - Chechnya and Dagestan. The natural third part – the Circassian war in the western Caucasus – is missing. He says that this would be an anticlimax after Shamil and that the war was too complex for a proper narrative. He cannot resist a good story and has a bad habit of repeating official casualty reports without expressing proper skepticism. The maps are hopeless, at least on an old Kindle. You will need a good printed map or google earth.

The only reason I managed to slog my way through half of this book was my keen interest in the subject matter. This was one of the most frustrating books I have ever tried to read. The narrative is continually interrupted in mid-sentence (or mid-word) by groupings of footnotes that relate to narrative that was read several pages beforehand. The narrative itself seemed awkwardly written, with convoluted run-on sentences and paragraphs, often requiring a re-read to fully comprehend. I was very disappointed in this book and it is doubtful I will ever attempt slogging through the second half of it. I will try other books on this subject.

Overall the printing of this book is adequate. My major complaint is that their maps were transferred without any care.
