Description

This study of Soviet military strategy is based upon the relationship between the army and politicians as well as Soviet writings on the subject of military strategy. Thanks to the policy of glasnost, it incorporates Soviet materials hitherto unavailable in the West. It should not be considered simply as a retrospective account of what was; it forms at least part of the context for what will be in the future.

Contents

The Civil War and military intervention (1917-1921); the emergence of Soviet military strategy (1921-1935); Soviet military strategy in the 1930s (1930-1941); Soviet military strategy in World War II (1941-1945); Post-World War II Soviet military strategy; future Soviet military strategy and its implications. Appendices: Soviet mobilization in World War II; Soviet strategic operations in World War II; recent Soviet views on military reform.
