Extremely Limited The Only Thing I Reallylimited The only thing I really about them was what Anthony Loyd covered n his book My War Gone By I Miss t So While the chapter on Mindhunter it didn t exactly seem to fit the rest of the book I really enjoyedt and at the same time was repulsed by how terrible the war there sounded Anna Politkovskaya s A Dirty War A Russian Reporter Flawd in Chechnya came up when I was browsing other books on It wasn t overly long so I decided to pickt upThe book didn t end up being what I thought or hoped It Would Be I would be I not super familiar with journalist accounts of war as the only two I ve read are the aforementioned book by Loyd and Peter Maass Love Thy Neighbor However those two books Sweet Stallion in my opinion give a greatnsight The County And The Kingdom into war from a journalist s perspective Lots of action stories ofncredible sadness and appalling brutality along with plenty of near death experiences for the journalists themselves Politkovskaya s book Summer Heat! is about the politics of the Second Chechen War than anything else Because of this there s no you are there ness to the story andt failed to draw me Crushed Ice in from the get go This books also a collection of articles so t s not a narrative of her time Risking It All in Chechnya and Ingushetia A Dirty War starts off with anntroduction by Thomas de Waal and for the most part I liked Dog Food 2 it It gives an overview of both Chechen Wars but I foundt a bit difficult to understand maybe because Santa In Montana (Calder Saga it wasn t uite thorough enough I thought maybe once I gotnto the book things would become clearer but because The Moonshiners Daughter it s based on politics that didn t really happen Politkovskaya writes about many different topics andt s very easy to see that she would not have been well liked among certain Russian circles Bodies of exhumed Russian soldiers were left untouched for long periods of time resulting Emmas Orphans in not being able to be easilydentified Russian soldiers were pulled Saints on Stage into the war with only very minimal training While the Russian government promised aid to Chechnya rarely did this ever actually turn up Ridiculous curfewsmposed on locals The terrible situation refugees faced etcThroughout the book I simply felt detached I feel bad saying Fading Echoes (Warriors: Omen of the Stars, it but I really did not enjoy this book Its a very uick read but nothing stayed with me nothing affected me I was never there with the reporter I read childhood happy hours it simply to finish readingt and I m glad I m done Regardless A Dirty War s a testament to what a corrupt business both war and politics are as well as to Politkovskaya s bravery n reporting things as they were not filtering them to make the government and the situation to sound better than Publish and Perish it was I would give this book 10 starsf I couldon par with the greatest journalistic novels Politkovskaya s book traces the first wave of the war Russia waged on the Chechen people Politkovskaya was one of the few writers to go there live there endure torture and other forms of abuse all n the name of telling t like The Book of Lamentations its Not only a great book by a great writer on the subject of freedom this book Guide Through the Old Testament is a testament to this woman s couragethe parallels between USIra and RussiaChechnaya are alsonteresting This was my first real exposure to Politkovskaya s work And after reading Nothing The Best-Case Scenario Handbook is True and Everythings Possible and The Sky Wept Fire just before this The Last Days of the Romanovs it s difficult to rate a book about how much I likedt Politkovskaya s prose The Fate of the Romanovs is brutal mirroring her subject matter I would rate this as a must read for anyone wanting to understand Moscow s relationship with Chechnya and the Chechens I read this book a few years before Anna Politkovskaya was murdered and I was astonished at the time by her passionate need to pursue the truth of the Chechen war without favoring either side She was as contemptuous of both sides as she was sympathetic to those who were forcedn whatever way to become part of the brutality for which both sides were responsible She wrote from and for the human level Her aim was to be a reporter someone who saw a situation and told us what she saw Too honest an approach too troubling for those Miss Julia Takes Over (Miss Julia, in power too vividn her descriptions of how war works on the human mind and body Someone decided she was too much of a nuisance too bothered by death So she too had to die I have already read Babchenko s war memoir and this only reinforces the horror of that book Everyone LOSER involvedn the tragedy of Chechnya was so terribly brutalized This book killed me a little Pundits have started yammering.
