Ever seen the movie Taras Bulba?  This is the true history of that war.  It amounted to a peasant revolt, but the peasants were the ferocious Cossack warriors of the steppes of Russia, who had as their allies the Tartars and the Ottomans.  The original book was published in 1667 and its author was, apparently, an eyewitness to these events, or at least had the opportunity to speak to the people who were actively involved in them.
