In this book Bulgarian military historian Nencho Nedelchev reflects on important events in the recent history of Bulgaria and the world. He doesn't claim to have made any contribution to the science of history with this collection of articles. Rather, he has summarized research carried out by other authors such as Dmitri Volkogonov, Henry Kissinger, William L. Shirer and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. He has used published collections of documents, scientific articles, facts from the memoirs of Soviet Red Army general Georgy Zhukov and television documentaries. Nedelchev hopes that his book will encourage people to read the original works.
