From That Flame Information Sheet

When I decided to write a book about Massoud, I wanted to do something other than merely report dates and facts. There are many nonfiction books already written about him. I wanted to grasp the many complexities of the man’s personality as well as his historically recorded accomplishments. That is when the idea of writing historic fiction occurred to me. Fiction would grant me the freedom to portray Ahmed Shah Massoud and his companions as I envisioned them. All of the characters in the book would be products of my imagination, and, with an historic skeleton as the framework for the tale, I would be able to write a story which portrayed Ahmed Shah Massoud in settings of my choosing.

While considerable research was conducted so that incidents are represented as accurately as possible, the story is one of historic fiction rather than historic fact.
It is my hope that as you read From That Flame, you not only get to know Massoud as the “Lion of Panjshir,” the leader, the military genius; but that you get to know
Ahmed Shah Massoud—the man.
