review Afgantsy download × PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ¼ Rodric Braithwaite Rodric Braithwaite ¼ 6 summary 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
