Just finished reading the second book by Nicolai Lilin - Freefall. Although the author acknowledges that the narrative is a blending of stories, personal and others, there seems to be some internet(i know!) speculation regarding the overall authenticity of the work. The prose is easy and enjoyable but somewhat unconventional, and maybe this contributes to the speculation. Anyways i rather enjoyed the read and a little browsing uncovered this that may be of interest; ArtOfWar. English. English version of Artofwar Please anyone feel free to steer me in direction of any decent books on the Soviet/Afghan or Russian?Chechen Wars beyond the handful that regularly appear in Waterstones/on Amazon. Thanks.
