Petrov took part in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-45. His first collection of lyric poems was The Source (1934). Many of his lyrics have become folk songs.

Petrov also wrote plays, including The Farmhand (1931) and Through Fire (1932), as well as the novella Before the Dawn (1952). One of the best works of Udmurt prose is Petrov’s novel Staryi Multan (1954; Russian translation, 1956), whose subject is the trial of the Udmurt peasants of the village of Staryi Multan, who were defended by V. G. Korolenko.
