Authentic and Eye-Opening Account of Western Civilization’s Main Enemy

“Robert Buchar’s book fills a vacuum, shedding light on the KGB’s secret assistance to Communism and its tyrants … [His] book shows the inner workings of [this] machine running its disinformation … for all to see.” – Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai

In And Reality Be Damned…, author Robert Buchar discusses the great political upheaval of the late 20th century—the fall of communism in Eastern Europe and the collapse of the Soviet Union. You will be spellbound as he describes the machinations of Uri Andropov, chairman of the KGB, who sought to preserve the wealth that threatened to slip out of the organization’s hands. And you will be fascinated to learn about Andropov’s hand-picked successor, Mikhail Gorbachev, and his so-called spontaneous freedom movement, which was, in fact, a coup d’état that was orchestrated by Moscow. And Reality Be Damned… is a riveting exposure of how Russia became the perfect KGB state, how its primary objective was to overthrow the United States as the world’s leading power, and how they felt that terrorism should become their main weapon. Don’t miss this opportunity to peak behind the once impenetrable Iron Curtain.
