One credible theory traces its origins to the early spring of 1980, and the death of a Lieutenant Semyon Popov in a field near Mazr-e Sharif. He died clutching a rare black tulip, native to northern Afghanistan. It was an exquisite flower. He had picked it himself just seconds before and was admiring it when a sniper’s bullet found his heart and ended his life.

Fortunately, "The Black Tulip" by Milt Bearden is a well-written and well-crafted espionage thriller set during the 1980s in Afghanistan and the Soviet Union at one of the those times when the Cold War was simmering a bit. The main characters are not deep, but they are interesting. Unlike the super hero/villain to which readers are constantly subjected in other works, the characters in this book are portrayed as competent professionals with foibles.

Excellent cold war tale by one of the CIA's architects of the Soviets failure in Afghanistan. A mix of spy tradecraft and drama to make for an excellent read. Ordered Mr. Beardens other non-fiction CIA vs KGB book based on the quality of this book.

This has the feel of someone who knows of which they speak. A very good story about the Afghan-Soviet War and the wider Cold War.

Milt Bearden was a CIA operative who participated in the USA actions against the USSR in Afghanistan. He knows whereof he speaks.

great read

Excellent book.

The plot of this book is a bit incongruous but highly entertaining, nonetheless. It certainly does demonstrate that the US is the new Russia in Afghanistan and that it's way time for us to be out.

Milt has a great novel. Sounds like some of it may not ge fiction.
