Warriors of Indomitable Spirit is an eyewitness account of the last days of the Donetsk airport defense against Russian troops during the first days of the current Russian-Ukrainian war. A group of Ukrainian patriots stood their ground in the face of the armed-to-the-teeth enemy for unbelievable 242 days. The awed Russian invaders called their indomitable adversaries ‘cyborgs.’
