    Afgantsy Read & Download Ñ 0 Afgantsy is a good book to read about those Russian soldiers who have served in Afghanistn during the former USSR's occupation of the country There are a few accounts that I didn't know before like the death of the first Communist President Noor Mohammad Taraki the coup d'état against Hafizullah Amin etc By reading this book one can say that it is a déjà vu The same scenario is taking place in Afghanistan as the Nato and other coalition

review Afgantsy Rodric Braithwaite Ò 0 Download review Ñ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ò Rodric Braithwaite In a timely and eye opening book Rodric Braithwaite examines the Russian experience in that most recent war in Afghanistan after Alexander's conuests and the many British imperial wars and skirmishes Largely basing his account on Russian sources and interviews he shows the war through the eyes of the Russians themselves politicians officers sold. Authoritative book on the Russian Afghan intervention from the Russian perspective The author compares this war with French Algerian American Vietnamese French Vietnamese interventions The Russians tried to implement their well tried developmental model in Afghanistan with a lot of determination and I think they might have been successful if they had been given enough time by the Americans But the Americans wanted to get their revenge for their Vietnam humiliation so they armed and trained the Islamist mujaheddin knowing full well that once the Russians had left the Islamists would take over What did didn t realise was that once they had managed to defeat Soviet Union they would be confronted by the very same enemyI found this aspect of this story a lot believing than the Westernised version of all invading Russian infidel army destroying hell bent on destroying every Afghan at random

review Afgantsy Rodric Braithwaite Ò 0 Download review Ñ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ò Rodric Braithwaite Ated mountain outposts The parallels with Afghanistan today speak for themselves 'A superb achievement of narrative history sensitive writing and exciting fresh research' so wrote Simon Sebag Montefiore about Rodric Braithwaite's bestseller Moscow 1941 But those words and many others of praise that were given it could eually apply to his new boo. I was a senior in high school when the USSR invaded Afghanistan in December 1979 Shortly thereafter the US boycotted the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow and President Jimmy Carter reinstated Selective Service registration My mother wrote a letter of protest and actually received a reply from the White House Three years later when I was a junior in college majoring in journalism the Soviets were bogged down in Afghanistan and it was among the hottest stories that we studied My favorite professor told us that in his opinion anything that occurred in the last 25 years was current events Anything older was historyNow the Soviet war in Afghanistan ualifies as history according to him Afgansty The Russians in Afghanistan 1979 1989 fills in all of the blanks that the Western news media couldn t when the war raged Rodric Braithwaite was the British Ambassador to the USSR during that period so if any one is ualified to write a book about the Soviet War in Afghanistan he is Braithwaite writes like a journalist not a government official His writing is crisp and vivid He sorts out messy situations such as the power struggle between factions in the Afghan Communist Party and among the mujahideen He doesn t get mired in alphabet soup when writing about the various Soviet military units This is a fast moving exciting book His sources include official Soviet records and personal interviews with Red Army soldiers civilian volunteers and mujahideenBraithwaite dispels all of the misconceptions perpetuated by the Western news media throughout the 1980s The Soviets had not learned from the US mistakes in Vietnam They repeated them in Afghanistan The mujahideen did not incessantly savage the Soviets with Stinger missiles They were often happy to negotiate ceasefires to position themselves better against their adversaries fellow mujahideen The Soviets did commit atrocities but were rank amateurs compared to the mujahideen The Soviets did commit atrocities but they also tried very hard to win the hearts and minds of the Afghans and were respectful of Islam And the biggest misconception of all The Soviets invaded Afghanistan to seize a warm water port Where Afghanistan is land locked According to Braithwaite they were working on a withdrawal plan from the moment they went inOf course the Western media did the best it could trying to report on a war waged by a closed society inside of another closed society However I vividly recall in 1980 a pervasive feeling that the Soviets were invincible Little did we know they were just as vulnerable as anybody all alongThis is a superb book
