Free Fall tells the brutal engrossing story of the Second Chechen War, through the eyes of a young Russian Soldier.
Nicolai Lilin was trained as a sniper in an unorthodox Russian Special Forces regiment called the Saboteurs.
This hardened and close-knit band of brothers, operating beyond the control of military code, faced mercenary fighters, anti-personnel mines and torture of the most extreme kind. Free Fall offers a sniper's-eye view of one of the most controversial wars in living memory.
It is unflinching, unforgiving and unputdownable.
