Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Glantz (director of research, US Soviet Army Studies Office, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas) bases this study on the twin pillars of Soviet political-military actions and Soviet writings on the subject of military strategy, incorporating Soviet materials previously unavailable in the US. Along with holding importance as a retrospective account, it forms at least part of the context for what will be in the future. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c.
