Contraportada:

Praise for Chienne de Guerre: A Woman Reporter Behind the Lines of the War in Chechnya

"In the best tradition of the bravest war correspondents, Nivat puts her readers on the ground in this mountainous Chechen terrain, and into the company of Chechens and Russians who conduct the mindless violence there. No one who reads this vivid, engaging book will ever get the Chechen wars or the people who fight them."
---Robert G. Kaiser, author of Russia: The People and the Power and Why Gorbachev Happened: His Triumphs and His Failure

"Not just a woman of courage but a journalist of special insight and daring, Nivat opens our eyes to a truly ugly war. Her report is exceptional, revelatory, bringing Chechnya dramatically close at hand. I'm not sure war coverage comes any better."
---Marvin Kalb, executive director of the Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics, and Public Policy at Harvard University

"Anne Nivat managed to travel unofficially with Chechen rebels, and her writing in Libération led to antiwar protests in Paris. But few foreign reporters have been able to match that accomplishment."
---Owen Matthews, Brill's Content

"With her deep understanding of Russia's peoples and languages, [Nivat] has fully grasped and powerfully portrayed the human, as well as inhuman, aspects of a ruinous conflict that continues to torment its victims and trouble the peace of the world."
---Michael Kaufman
