A pygmy-size enemy is no match for the Russian Cossack in this lubok-style poster from the beginning of the war, reflecting the early optimism of the Russian public with regards to the war’s outcome. I. Kuptsova mentions The Cossack’s Daring when discussing the role of lubok posters in wartime Russian propaganda in her article Nash soldat - eto soldat udivitel’noi, pryamo-taki zheleznoi stoikosti [Our Soldier Is a Soldier of Amazing, Literally Ironclad, Perseverance], which appeared in Voyenno Istorichesky Zhurnal [Journal of Military History] (2004, no. 10, pp. 54-59).
