The 174 Kabardans from Upper Kurp who served in World War Two
This is from a 1995 book in Russian - Malokabardintsy na frontakh Velikoi Otechestvennoi Voiny 1941-1945 [Lesser Karbadans on the Fronts of the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945], by V. S. Beslaneev.
From a local press, it's a compilation of many short biographies of numerous servicemen from the ethnic Lesser Kabarda region of the Caucasus, as well as lists of almost all the men who served from each town. Lesser Karbarda was overrun by the Germans during 1942, and had an anti-German underground as well as anti-Soviet guerrillas.
As an example of the cost of war, here's the list from a small town named Upper Kurp. During the war 194 men from Upper Kurp joined the army. Of these, only 61 survived the war. Notice the many common family names, which must be quite local, as for the most part they are not common to the lists from other Kabarda towns. Few Christian names are here; the overwhelming majority have local Muslim names, with the middle name showing the father's name in the Russian fashion. The great majority of "Died" are of course killed in action.
If this list is, as it intends to be, complete, it shows some interesting things. First, almost all the men were drafted into the army in 1941 or 1942. Only a few were inducted in 1943 or later, and none in 1945. I believe this reflects Stalin's mid-war directive to no longer conscript certain ethnic groups which were less devoted to the Soviet cause. Second, there are only 3 casualties listed for 1944, and only 1 for 1945. Are they covered by the entries lacking dates (n.d. = no date), or are the "no dates" randomly covering all the years 1941-1945?
Here's a list of 174 men from Upper Kurp who were served in the Great Patriotic War. Most were killed. I offer this list to the reader as a small memorial to all of those who had to pay more than their fair share for the foolishness of man.
