    PDF/EPUB Rodric Braithwaite ☆ Afgantsy PDF/EPUB Ù ☆ afgantsy epub, Afgantsy ePUBThe author of this book was the British ambassador to the USSR and then the Russian Federation but I highly appreciate his objective approach throughout the book which is about the causes of Soviet involvement in Afghanistan right up till the withdrawal of the troops and its aftermath from the Russian point of view One reason why I found this book interesting was that the author has uoted first hand experiences of those who were part of the battlefield In initial chapters the author establishes his case on how Afghanistan became a bone of contention between the British and Tsarist Russia Gradually author takes reader to the 1970’s when People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan PDPA coups against Preside

    PDF/EPUB Rodric Braithwaite ☆ Afgantsy PDF/EPUB Ù ☆ afgantsy epub, Afgantsy ePUBAfgantsy 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 forces are preparing for the withdrawal of their forces from Afghanistan as the Russian did in 1989 The government and people are worried as they were at the time of Russian withdrawalIn general it is a good book for those who are interested in Afghanistan and its volatile history
