life like during the war? (ISBN 9781434359339) described by History Direct

affected Britain during World War two' and by UCL People (University College

This powerful fast moving blend of recent history with the fictitious adventures of a British spy caught up in the war between Russia and Georgia over semi-independent Abkhazia is a thriller full of danger and suspense. Much of the action takes place against a background of trekking in the wilderness of the Caucasus Mountains.
The conflict escalates when Georgia invades and captures Sukhumi.
