Polyakov, devoted to history ofsoviet partisan movement on territory of Crimea in period from 1941 to 1944.Based on analysis of text of monograph in detail authorial conception of partisan movement during SecondWorld War in general and on territory of the Crimean peninsula, in particular, is considered.
