By Arkadi Babtschenko,Olaf Kühl

Januar 2000. Russische Truppen belagern einen kleinen Ort nahe der tschetschenischen Hauptstadt Grosny, in dem sich Rebellen verschanzt haben. Die Soldaten, starr vor Kälte, hungrig, durstig, müde, liegen tagelang in ihren Stellungen und warten. Sie wissen nicht, wofür sie kämpfen. Die brutale Ignoranz der eigenen Kommandeure, die ständige Todesangst und die zermürbende Langeweile setzen sämtliche Kategorien des zivilen Lebens außer Kraft. Als plötzlich Heckenschützen das Feuer eröffnen, verlieren einige Soldaten die Nerven ...
Arkadi Babtschenko kennt diese Welt aus eigener Erfahrung. «Aus dem ersten Tschetschenienkrieg bin ich eigentlich nicht zurückgekehrt, ich bin dort verschollen», sagt er über sich. Mit seiner kraftvoll lakonischen, poetischen Sprache gelingt es ihm, den Alltag des Krieges, seine Grausamkeit wie seine grotesken Momente sinnfällig zu machen. Ein ebenso beklemmendes wie packendes Stimmungsbild, das seinesgleichen sucht.

Eingewoben in einen geradezu abenteuerlich anmutenden Angriffsplan auf den nordamerikanischen Kontinent, vermittelt der Autor eine bisher nicht bekannte militärstrategische Atmosphäre, wie sie vor und während der Zeit des Kalten Krieges hätte sein können.
