Quiet Flows the Don is a panoramic view of ten years of Cossack life in the Don region of Russia. Set in the turbulent years of the First World War, the Revolution and the Civil War, it deals unblinkingly with the main questions confronting the War's Communist regime: how much ruthlessness can be practised in order to establish Soviet power? The Bolsheviks' harsh repression of the Cossacks - disastrous both morally and politically - leads to a mass rebellion, which succeeds in driving the Reds out of the Don territory but not before the Don loses almost half its population in bloody and merciless battle. The long savagery of the Russian Civil War brutalizes many of those who are caught up in it on either side. Many of the Don Cossacks are farmers, content to pursue their hard-working lives and to stand aside from the fateful clash between Whites and Reds. But they are drawn ineluctably into the bitter conflict and, through the eyes of Sholokhov's vivid cast of characters, we see how families and friends are divided in the name of reordering society, and their way of life destroyed for ever.
