    if you read the full book some very important points you get

    1> heavy armour deployment was a major issue for russia you can see why russia wants the minstral class desperately.The kinikob or saratov were doing a good job still heavy armour was a big issue.

    2> Atleast 3 SU25 were lost in friendly fire while giving air support shows some lack of co-ordination between the wings

    3> dismissing all rumours turkey and nato showed that war must be fought by own blood and not via shared, although turkey did deliver the armoured carriers that they had negotiated

    4>georgia now wants to send 900 trops to afgan if 1000 iraq troops were not enough still the US did little for them in the post war era.

    Thanks for sharing.
    Even though I've just jumped into it, it definitely seems to be an excellent read.
