The Chechen War was supposed to be over in 1996 after the first Yeltsin campaign but in the summer of 1999 the new Putin government decided in their own words to 'do the job properly' Before all the bodies of those who had died in the first campaign had been located or identified many thousands would be slaughtered in another round of fightingThe first account to be written by a Russian woman A Dirty War is an 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

Anna Politkovskaya ✓ 1 REVIEW

Edgy and intense study of a conflict that shows no sign of being resolved Exasperated by the Russian government's attempt to manipulate media coverage of the war journalist Anna Politkovskaya undertook to go to Chechnya to make regular reports and keep events in the public eyeIn a series of despatches from July 1999 to January 2001 she vividly describes the atrocities and abuses of war whether it be the corrupt This was my first real exposure to Politkovskaya s work And after reading Nothing is True and Everything is Possible and The Sky Wept Fire just before this it s difficult to rate a book about how much I liked it Politkovskaya s prose 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
