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 forced in 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 in power too vivid in 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
