“Massively outnumbered and outgunned by the Russian military, the story of the Chechens’ ability to hold and then humble them in the First Chechen War is an extraordinary one – hardly overshadowed by the Russians’ capacity to learn from their mistakes in the Second. Through well-chosen case studies, this book explores the tactics of both sides and in the process becomes the best military study of this conflict yet” – Mark Galeotti, Professor of Global Affairs at the Center for Global Affairs at New York University

“Fangs of the Lone Wolf sheds light on a poorly understood unconventional war and does so from a rare perspective – that of Chechens who fought against Russia from 1994-2009. Billingsley captures the voices of the Chechens from years of interviews conducted in Chechnya and in exile.” – Mark von Hagen, Arizona State University
