Description

The eminent authors of this book draw on thousands of Soviet Ministry of Defense publications – only a few of which have been translated into English – and four years of research in the USSR to portray the fundamentals of Soviet military doctrine and strategy.

They fully cover the postwar development of the Soviet military, looking at the high command, each of the five services, combat formations, and supporting agencies, and give a comprehensive account of the Soviet military-industrial complex, military training of Soviet youth, military manpower mobilization, and the Soviet officer corps.

Their discussion of the relationship between the Party and the Armed Forces, based on Soviet data, includes an examination of popular Western myths about internal Soviet military debates and military –Party splits. This up-to-date reference book includes numerous footnotes, tables, figures, and a wealth of other data – all based exclusively on primary sources.
