Published in 2016, “Soviet And Mujahideen Uniforms, Clothing And Equipment Of The Soviet-Afghan War, 1979-1989” by Zammis Schein catalogs the author’s extensive collection of wartime artifacts.
The 500-page volume contains every conceivable variant of Soviet uniform, including armor crew, aircrew, infantry and spetznaz as well as women’s ensembles.
Mujahideen clothing has also been catalogued. Much of it will be quite familiar to those who have served in Afghanistan. In fact, that’s where the author began his collection, while working as an interpreter.
The collection is certainly impressive and includes inert models of the infamous PFM-1 “Butterfly” landmine.
Additionally, the author has included pocket litter such as ID cards, letters and other ephemera.
The book has value as a reference document but I wish it had also featured the historical images depicting the equipment in use which were used by the author to validate the items.
