Little Eduard was born in Armenia in 1923, into a family of teachers. Young Eduard volunteered for the front. In between battles, he wrote poetry and read them to fellow soldiers. In May 1944, a courageous young man accomplished a feat that affected the fate of the Sevastopol battle, but he paid for it with his health. Part of his skull was blown off by a shell fragment. The injury left him blind. For the rest of his life, Eduard Asadov wore a black bandage covering the upper part of his face. Throughout her treatment, she continued to write poems. These were poems about war, about love, about life. The poet glorified the heroic everyday life of soldiers and officers, the bright rays of the sun, and the usual trivial events. The poet died in 2004.
