Review: ZHUKOV'S DOGS by Amanda Cyr

This is the kind of story I think of when I consider the definition of dystopian. As I read it, I kept thinking this must be like reading a memoir of Guantanamo, or a historical recounting of the horrors in Eastern Europe in the 1990's. Perhaps a more apropos reference would be to the medieval Children's Crusade, during which children of all ages were scarcely trained, then shuffled off toward Jerusalem as cannon fodder in an ongoing war that even the Christian European adults could not win. Here, too, young children are trained, for espionage and killing; and when they're captured, age doesn't' excuse them from interrogation and torture. To be Published by Curiosity Quills Press
