The Last Bivouac - from Horowitz' Golden Treasury of Chess

This game was played between two Russian officers, Lieutenant Denn and Captain Perwago, stationed in Manchuria, on the night before a fateful battle in which Captain Perwago was killed and Lieutenant Denn seriously wounded. The lieutentant sent the score of the game to Simon Alapin with the attached note:
"The furious attack of the Captain during the battle was equal to the present brilliant encounter."
