The peaceful and almost bucolic life that many of the veterans of Independent Spetznaz Regiment 317 with their wives settled in to around the village of Lyski near Odessa after the Battle of the Terek River was not to be. Trouble was brewing on the horizon but few noticed at first.

As indications of the coming trouble became more obvious in summer of 2013, plans were made. By late summer all the veterans were moving south to Sevastopol Region. They had hardly settled in to their new homes in the little village of Chernorich’chya when they knew they would have to serve one more time.

This is the beginning of their story of those turbulent times.

    Babushka in Oz
    Captivating tale full of intrigue
    February 8, 2018
    In returning to the story of Roma and Annya and their compatriots (from Never the Last One), Auslander weaves a merry tale of intrigue and portending drama, about to unfold in Sevastopol, Crimea.

    The interplay between the author’s imagination and the raw facts is one of the most fascination aspects of this novel. Set against a backdrop of real events and real places, the reader is left to filter fact from fiction. Just when the reader thinks they have solved that riddle, then a new character appears adding more mystery. It’s like a matryoshka (babushka) doll- remove one piece and another one appears with their secrets. And then another.

    Right on cue, two aging babushka’s, with frail limbs but minds like steel traps, appear as heroes – magnificent. Oh how I love those two feisty 90 year old Russian partisans.

    I had goosebumps so many times reading this captivating little fairy tale. But, then ‘truth can be stranger than fiction.’

    The teaser at the end makes sure we come back for the next instalment.

    What an amazing story! How much is true and how much is fantasy? My wife and I know from your other books that a lot of what you write is true, you write it so it looks like fantasy.

    The story is very good and hard to stop reading. You have a great understanding of our culture and it shows in your books. Your description of village life and our army is perfect, exactly as it is, and all the new characters in this book are true to life in our country. The events and action continue in a very understandable way and I like very much the two old Partisan ladies from The Great Patriotic War, their stories are very believable and speak of life like it was in Sevastopol during the war. My wife and I like the ending very much and we know someone with the same gift that Annya Dmitrovna has.

    I thank you for giving this book to (our son) to send to us. He and (son’s commanding officer) have read it and liked the story very much. You have given him permission to give the book to his friends and I think in a week half the officers in (Fleet and VDV) will have read this good story. Be ready for some good conversations at the memorial service Saturday at Battery!
