ONE SOLDIER'S WAR IN CHECHNYA

by Arkady Babchenko. Translated by Nick Allen


A compulsively readable and vivid account of life as a young soldier in Russia's Chechen wars, it takes the raw and mundane reality of days amid guns and grenades and twists it into compelling, chilling, and eerily elegant prose. Babchenko traces his journey from innocence to experience, beginning with his teenage arrival in the transit camp just north of Chechnya and harsh treatment by his seniors as a naive and scared new recruit, through to his period of active duty at the front, by which time he has become a brutalized and hardened soldier.

NORTHROP GRUMMAN B-2 SPIRIT

by Bill Holder 

A beautifully illustrated history of Northrop's amazing Stealth Bomber, the batlike B-2 Spirit. Developed using many of Jack Northrop's Flying Wing theories (and looking remarkably similar to the revolutionary XB-35 and YB-49 bombers of the 'forties) the Spirit has truly revolutionised the USAF's ability to project strategic power on a global scale. Four stealthy B-2s can deliver the same bombing power as thirty two standard attack aircraft backed up by twenty eight escort and defence suppression aircraft and fifteen tankers!

New in card cover - 76pp, 117 colour
& 29 b/w illustrations, tables, diagrams
