"Fascinating....A highly readable history of the conflict." -New York Times Book Review In The Great Gamble, a groundbreaking account of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, former NPR Moscow correspondent Gregory Feifer vividly depicts the war that contributed greatly to the demise of the USSR, and that offers striking lessons for the 21st century, as well. Told from the perspective of the Russians who fought it, The Great Gamble offers valuable insight into the history of Afghanistan's troubled government and the rise of the Mujahideen and Al-Qaeda. In the words of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, "Feifer has done truly extraordinary research... For all its heft, [The Great Gamble] is an effortless read-an unusual and gratifying combination."
