    DescriptionIn the early hours of New Years Eve 1994, Russian troops invaded Chechnya, plunging the country into a prolonged and bloody conflict. A foreign correspondent in Moscow at the time, sne Seierstad traveled regularly to Chechnya to report on the war, describing its effects on those trying to live their daily lives amidst violence. Over the course of a decade, she traveled in secret and under the constant threat of danger. In a broken and devastated society, Seierstad lived amongst the wounded and the lost. And she lived with the orphans of Grozny, those who will shape the countrys future, asking the question: what happens to children who grow up surrounded by war and accustomed to violence?

    Review quote
    "The Observer" (U.K.)"As a crash course on recent Chechen and Russian history, Seierstad's account is invaluable: she presents all the confusing contradictions of the conflict in a straightforward, accessible way, which is no mean feat...she has a real eye for detail and the human heart of a story." "Independent" (U.K.)"[Asne Seierstad] tells their stories with poignancy and compassion. "THE ANGEL OF GROZNY" reads at times almost like a novel; the pity is that Seierstad isn't making it up."
