I really, really loved this book, as an active duty infantry NCO I have deployed Afghanistan 3 times and believe it or not the ghosts of the once mighty soviet military still haunt and paint a sober image of what happened there from the old rusting tank, bmp and hind hulks littering the country sides and landscape, the minefields that still claim civilian and military lives, and the marked/unmarked graves of Soviet and Mujahedeen fighters. - IPMS / USA
