The Soviet Economy and the Red Army, 1930-1945

Overview

This book describes the creation of a new economy in the Soviet Union from 1930 to 1945. The Red Army defeated the Germans in World War II with equipment produced by that economy and not with masses of untrained men as has been often argued.

Overview

This book describes the creation of a new economy in the Soviet Union from 1930 to 1945. The Red Army defeated the Germans in World War II with equipment produced by that economy and not with masses of untrained men as has been often argued. The Soviet weapons were produced in factories designed and built under the direction of American engineers in the 1930s. Also, the Weimar Republic played a part in the creation of the Red Army by providing aviation and tank training schools and technical assistance to the developing armaments industry. Dunn argues that if France had been invaded by the Allies in 1943 rather than in 1944, the post-war world would have been less advantageous to the Soviet Union.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Joins other recent books in refuting the early charge that US leaders were Communist puppets when they advocated opening a second front against Germany in 1943 and supplied the Soviet Union with huge amounts of aid. Explores how the Red Army was equipped and supplied and had become a force capable of defeating the Germans by 1943. More an institutional than operational or personal history. The reader is assumed to have a working knowledge of the events of World War II. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
