This oral history contains the accounts of those men and women who were sent to Afghanistan and of family members whose children did not return. It paints a picture of horror and brutality. I was struck by the number of landmines and the many who lost all of their limbs as a result. However, the book provides no context of the war as a proxy war against the US funded Afghan mujahedeen, nor of the Russian failed efforts at building infrastructure and providing education for Afghan children.
Bold, powerful, distressing. By the way, the "zinky" in the title refers to the material used for the coffins holding the remains of soldiers returning from the Afghanistan war.
