Book Description
This is the story of the defeat of Soviet Russia`s forces by a guerrilla force known as the Mujahideen during the late 80`s. The author, Brigadier Mohammad Yousaf was head of the Afghan Bureau of Pakistan`s Inter-Service Intelligence and was effectively the Mujahideen`s commander-in-chief. He controlled the flow of the thousands of tons of arms across Pakistan and into its occupied neighbour, arms that were bought from the USA with CIA and Saudi Arabian funds. For a clear understanding of the pitfalls of a major military intervention into onf of the World`s most primitive and hostile environments, you could do no better than to read The Bear Trap. It describes in detail ambushes, assassinations, raids and rocket attacks deep inside Afghanistan territory. The lessons in The Bear Trap have never been more relevent after the US president declared `The War Against World Terrorism`. It is mandatory reading for military planners and will fascinate all with a close interest and concern in events triggered by the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.
