“Every civilized person on this planet wants peace; however do the world know that even peace comes with a price, well who can afford peace? Peace is not free and always comes with price and interestingly only the ones holding more power can afford the peace. As the world is never going to listen to a weak, while the very same people will bow down and unquestionably agree to the words of the strongest!”
Reviewing this book, “Unseen Battles Behind Russia-Ukraine War” by Author Dr. Rahul Yadav has been quite an informative experience for me. As the book has not only covered the present war scenarios between the two nations of Russia and Ukraine but has also presented a detailed historical data of Europe and the world too. However, the overall theory of warfare is not presented in a neutral manner and wars are criticized way too much in this book. From the readers’ point of view, the book certainly looks very informative but at the same time, an impression is created that the state of Russia has been excessively put under the scanner.
About the Author: Author, Dr. Rahul Yadav is a medical doctor working as a Neonatologist for last 20 years. He carries a deep interest in history, politics and archaeology. He is trying to understand the seemingly inexplicable phenomena like this war in a holistic context. His book, “Unseen Battles Behind Russia-Ukraine War” got released on 19th of May 2022 and got published worldwide by Evincepub Publishing.
Book’s Introduction: This book, “Unseen Battles Behind Russia-Ukraine War” by Author Dr. Rahul Yadav holds a detailed information of the Russia-Ukraine scenario as well as the historical aspects of Eastern Europe is deeply covered. The book comes under the category of ‘Military History’ and can be regarded as a reading worthy text to learn about some lesser explored events of the world history!
As described by the author, this book deals with many unseen aspects of this war. Historical background behind foundation of Russia will be covered. Economic insecurity of Russia due to climate change being the fundamental reason behind this risky gamble by Russia will be discussed. Region, legacy of world war and Russian Civil War will be presented. At the end, it will give an outline to prevent future conflicts.
Book Title: The title of this book, “Unseen Battles Behind Russia-Ukraine War” is most certainly a catchy one and this is something which makes the book even more interesting, as the title itself compels you as a reader to pick up this book for a read. Especially in the current day time, when the war between the states of Russia and Ukraine is still going on the readers would feel the urge to go inside the chapters and try to understand the Author’s interpretation of this month long war. In addition, the book title is also creating a curiosity in the minds of the readers to explore the unseen battles, which are neglected due to this Russia-Ukraine war!
Well, Author Dr. Rahul Yadav has completely succeeded in choosing a perfect Book Title for his incredible military history title and the chapters in the book justified the book title too. Therefore, I must mention that it is a very apt title for a book and the Author had been extremely wise to go for this title.
Readers Connect: Now here comes the tricky part, as the book seems to be really awesome at some places and not so at other places. Well, the good thing is that the Author has presented a great deal of historical events, which has not been taught as the part of mainstream history but holds a great significance. This detailed information consists of the several wars, which have shaped up the history of Europe, Asia and the World. In addition, the readers can also find some more information about the crusades and the presence of maps in the book makes it a great read for sure.
However, the beginning of the book is creating a very different impression where it seems that the book is favoured towards a particular side in the war between Russia and Ukraine. The initial philosophy by the Author over the war may look good in bookish terms but does not seems to hold much potential in the practical world. The author has criticized war way too excessively and had painted a very negative picture of the war, this may look good in a book but for the military personals this can be very demotivational. Everything should not be painted either as black or white as there are some good aspects in everything. It is true that nobody wants war but if your enemies are creating threats for you then you do not keep armed forces just for show off. Peace comes with power and the one who hold power can ensure peace in a region for long term, one should see the greater picture. Therefore, the book may seem bit shortsighted to certain group of readers due to these reasons!
Verdict: A Book like “Unseen Battles Behind Russia-Ukraine War” is for sure a Must-Read oneand deserves a chance. The way author had penned down these marvellous chapters with such details and yet being so crisp is indeed praise worthy. You seriously do not get to read a book like this every day, these kinds of Novels hits the market only once in a while and Author truly deserves appreciation for his hard work over here. Dr. Rahul Yadav is a promising Author, who is very dedicated to his writings, which can be felt in his spectacular book.
