Editorial Reviews

When Michael Gordon, the Moscow Bureau Chief for The New York Times, finished his tour of duty in Russia, he did an unusual thing. Instead of writing a book, as so many correspondents do, he teamed up with Russian filmmakers to make a film. In this compelling one-hour documentary, Michael Gordon takes viewers inside the war the West forgot.

This is a war that made a President. Vladimir Putin rose to power claiming that he would restore order and "normal life" to Chechnya, but almost two years later, more than 3,500 Russians soldiers have died in the conflict, and some 10,000 have been wounded. The rebel casualties are probably higher. Nobody even bothers to count the civilians. Chechnya has degenerated into a grinding stalemate between two losing sides.

Western political leaders, including President Bush, support Putin's claim that he is fighting Islamic fundamentalist terrorists on Russian soil, but as Michael Gordon reveals in this film, the underlying reality is deeper.

Gordon's experience covering Russia for The New York Times afforded him unprecedented access to those caught up in this war. Gordon and the film crew were able to capture the powerful stories of ambushed Russian soldiers, war widows, Chechen rebels, refugees, and raw Russian recruits. These dramatic stories provide viewers with an unparalled insight into Putin's war in Chechnya.
