It is adventurous stuff,living rough with what were then called the "Mujahideen" and accompanying one of their best known leaders,Ahmed Shah Masood.(He,incidentally,was assassinated just a few days before 9/11).It is a pretty glamourized description of these Afghan fighters,a ragtag militia,as they fought the might of the Soviet Union. The rugged,magnificent and breathtaking scenery of Afghanistan is beautifully described as is the way of life of a people who had endured nearly a decade of war by then.And of course,since then too,have known little else but endless civil war,brutal acts of terrorism,and external invasion.

    An interesting account of a journey in Afghanistan during the Soviet Invasion. Definitely recommended and not only for history buffs.
