About the Author:

Groomed from and early age for membership in his nation's fighter pilot elite, Zuyev spent eleven years in the Soviet Air Force, as a star cadet, a pilot handpicked to test the new Mig-29 Fulcrum. Yet gradually Zuyev came to realize that the political system he served was hopelessly corrupt and callously indifferent to the sufferings of the Soviet people.

Review:

"In the grand tradition of Solzhenitsin and Sakharov..." -- Steven Coonts, author of Under Siege

"Stunning!...I have never encountered a better'insider'book-Fulcrum reads like the very best thrillers, but every word is true." -- Ralf Peters, author of the Red Army
