    Не один раз... пока не...

    Не один раз... пока не...
    The phrase is:
    Не один раз Егор Дрёмов водил свой танк в атаку, пока не случилось с ним несчастье.
    I translate: "No one time had Egor driven his tank to attack, in which (ocassion) he had suffered a misfortune". More plainly: "Up to then, Egor has suffered no misfortune when driving his tank to attack". Is it acceptable?
    Thanks.

    Не один раз = не раз = more than once; time and again; not once; many times
    Пока не = until

    Egor had driven his tank to attack many times, until a misfortune happened to him.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.
