Resisting

In the late 1990s I came across these Hazara militiamen on the hills  south of the former Soviet air base at Bagram, where they occupied a frontline position, facing off against the northern forces of Ahmad Shah Massoud.

No Helmet, No Socks

No body armour, no socks. Travelling on an armoured personnel carrier in Wardak Province, Afghanistan with Associated Press correspondent Earleen Fisher. The Moscow-backed Afghan government of President Najibullah arranged the trip in a dubious effort to demonstrate their control of the countryside, July 1991.  It was rumoured that Islamist forces could be paid to lay low for the purposes of their enemies' reputation.

Red Square

Solidarity on Red Square. In 1980 I travelled to Moscow, then capital of the Soviet Union, where I visited the home of the late comic genius Nikolai Gogol, attend a performance of the Bolshoi Ballet, and stayed at the majestic, but somewhat rundown Metropol Hotel. Tolstoy, Gogol, Pasternak and Ilya Ehrenburg are among my literary heroes.
