Greetings, I am new here and have not been lurking for long. I have a general interest in conspiracy theories partly out of a personal dislike for MSM (I have thrown my TV away 7 years ago and have never looked back) and a natural curiosity in all things outside the "accepted" experience. I have witnessed the UFO phenomenon on several occasions, and I can tell you that all those folks reporting this sort of thing are not crazy. It's real, whatever it is. But that's is not why I'm here.

As one can probably tell from my username, Russian history is something that interests me quite a bit. I am currently working on a translation of a book by Vyacheslav Nikolayevich Mironov, titled "I Witnessed This War - Chechnya 1995". The author is a veteran of several wars the RF army had been involved in including events in Georgia and Transnistria in the early 90's. I found his account of the Second assault on Grozny in January 1995 a fascinating, yet grim story. A partial English translation exists here:

But in my opinion is not very good. I am not a professional writer, but writing is something I have done as a hobby for many years now, so I thought I'd give this one a try. If anybody is interested and moreover is able to assist with correct military terminology (which is where I struggle the most), that would be excellent. I have completed 2 chapters which are available on my own site,

but perhaps if the mods will let me know if the full text is better posted here, I'm happy to do that also.

Cheers Sauron.

Links removed? I'm assuming that can be judged in violation of T&C 15e.iii, which is fair enough, however my site is not an online community. I am not trying to take your members away in other words. How do I appropriately seek help with the translation on these forums?

There is a specific reason I came here and not a military history forum. The content of the book is somewhat scandalous and if if not conspiracist in tone, it definitely contradicts the official version of events, what is described in it will come as no surprise to those in some way familiar with the subject matter.
