Military leadership in Russia and everywhere should read this book. It describes the tragedy and useless loss of lives on foreign soil. Russians go home. One 18 year old after another, ill prepared for war, is killed and sent home in a zinc coffin to forever change and often ruin the lives of those Mothers and family left behind.

What did you love best about Zinky Boys?
It's a deeply moving, grunt's eye view of the Soviet-Afghan conflict.
What other book might you compare Zinky Boys to and why?
Reminded me very much at times of WAR by Sebastian Younger, but it's all first-person accounts.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christine Marshall?
Absolutely. In fact, my only complaint with this book is that they chose a female narrator. The bulk of these accounts are from Soviet soldiers. This book desperately needed a male narrator. I was able to get past the performance, but a male narrator would have vastly improved the final product.
