"The Crimson Beret" is a story about modern-day Spartans, fearless and invincible warriors, real men, as well as the beautiful, wise women who support their soldiers with the power of love to inspire their men’s feats.

In this book, the author, a former Special Forces major, not only reveals the secrets of how the Russian elite Special Forces are trained for action, but also discusses the unpleasant, negative aspects of the Russian Army, of which he was a part. For doing this, Russia’s military officials scored him severely, yet commanders of operational units engaged in battle missions use The Crimson Beret as a training aid for their officers and soldiers.

This powerful novel also explores the friendship and the intense brotherhood of warriors, how real courage and heroism fit into the picture, and the self-sacrifice and reckless bravery of those who must fight the world’s battles.

“This book is not only a fascinating read but tells an important behind-the-scenes story about the military. We are thrilled to announce its release,” said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.
