Red Vendée [available in Georgian]

In 1920, at the direction of Sergo Orjonikidze, the head of the Caucasus Bureau of the Russian Communist Party, great preparations were made in the Caucasus. In April, the “South Ossetian Partisan Brigade” was created from the Ossetian Bolsheviks who had fled from Georgia in the previous years, and Kozaev, the son of Razden Shamel, an old Bolshevik, was appointed as its political commissar.
