Три століття козацького флоту [Текст] = Three Centuries of the Kozak Fleet / В'ячеслав Саричев ; англ. пер. Г. Остапенко ; худож. Є. Саричев ; упоряд. картогр. матеріалів О. Черненко ; Нац. заповідник "Хортиця", Благод. фонд "Хортиця". - Запоріжжя : Кераміст, 2015. - 136 с.

The history of Zaporizhzhya Kozaks is inseparably connected with the sea campaigns and battles. That’s why it is considered to be the history of the Kozak fleet as well. From the late 15th to the late 18th centuries that fleet helped the Kozaks to challenge the confrontation and interaction of Western and Eastern civilizations and protect Ukrainian people from destruction. Taking this into account, the author believes the popular opinion about the historical period of the legendary “chaika’s” existence (from 16th to 17th century) to be arguable. While the Kozaks existed in the place of intersection of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Ottoman Empire and Russia Empire’s expansion directions, their fleet continued to be a significant factor of geopolitical transformations in the Northern Black Sea and the Sea of Azov regions.

The edition is published in English and in Ukrainian. The book is intended for everyone interested in the history of Ukraine and Zaporizhzhya Kozaks.
