  • About the Edition

    Report considers the debate over military doctrine and strategy in the final days of the Soviet Union and the first six months of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and Russian Federation. Since the direction that the CIS and former Soviet republics will take should be cast in terms of their immediate past, a brief review of recent Soviet history is warranted. The report then shifts to an analysis of the organizational development of the armed forces themselves. Having considered these overall questions, the report then outlines their implications on the Navy. The source material for this report is the open- source literature and statements of authorized spokesmen in the former Soviet Union. Russia, Commonwealth of independent states, Navy, Military doctrine, Military strategy.

    DEFENSE AND AIRLAND BATTLE IN SOVIET MILITARY THOUGHT, by MAJ William K. Sutey, USA, 60 pages. This study seeks to isolate and probe the possible deterrent influence of conventional doctrine through a case study of the former Soviet Union's reaction to the US Army's doctrinal evolution from (Active Defense) to (AirLand Battle).Author: William K Sutey.   "Inside the Soviet Army" is essentially the insights of a former Soviet GRU (military intelligence) officer (and former tank commander) who defected to the West in the s or thereabouts. It is an attempt by the author to tell the uninitiated what the basic nature and philosophy of the (former) Soviet Army was comprised of.5/5(5).

    The Egyptian adaption of the Soviet military doctrine is very well laid out in the book The Egyptian Strategy for the Yom Kippur War. Overall though, as much as one wants to establish differences between doctrine, it may not need be so obvious or glaringly laid out as such. Description: No other nation has invested as much intellectual capital in the study of war as has the Soviet Union over the last six decades, and the doctrine, strategy, and tactics that have been developed by Soviet theoreticians are bound to guide any future Soviet military action. The Soviet Art of War makes available to Western readers.

Armed revolution and civil war gave birth to the Soviet Union, world War II propelled it to global pre-eminence, and the Cold War contributed to the Soviet Union's demise.

Given Marxism-Leninism's idological preoccupation with war and threats of war, it is understandable that the spectre of war should play a vital role in the life and fate of the Soviet state.5/5(1).

Russia’s Military Strategy and Doctrine is designed to educate Russia watchers, And each section of the book is written by one of the world’s of Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union.

The more uncertain the developments in Russia and the rest of the former Soviet Union become, the more urgent is the need to understand Soviet military thinking over year span of Soviet history. Although other books discuss various aspects of Soviet military thought, this study by senior scholars more thoroughly combines the perspectives of history and the social sciences to understand 4/5(1).

Garthoff was prepared as part of the research program undertaken for the United States Air Force by The RAND Corporation. At the time of its first publication, Soviet Brand: Muriwai Books. The US began collecting books written in the Soviet Union about WWII and interviewing surviving German officers in the east and west and Warsaw Pact military defectors.

To their horror, the US realized that it had completely misunderstood Soviet tactical warfare and began reviewing and rewriting their own doctrine, leading to the AirLand Battle. The most prominent interpretation of Soviet military policy is the military-mission model.(12) In this view, Soviet military policy was founded on military doctrine--the basic assumptions of the political leadership about the nature and goals of a possible future war.(13) On the basis of the doctrine, the model suggests, the general staff.

But the Russian military is not as ready for expeditionary warfare in the Third World as it was politically, diplomatically, and militarily in the s or s. And a one-service operation abroad goes against the grain of traditional Soviet and Russian military thinking.

These ideas are more the products of panic than informed reflection. Fortunately Oscar Jonsson’s new book, The Russian Understanding of War: Blurring the Lines Between War and Peace is not.

Jonsson, the Director of the Stockholm Free World Forum,has packed this slim volume with a potent on his field research in Moscow, he takes the all-too-novel approach of examining. The American military at the end of the Cold War was a formidable force, large in size, very well equipped, and quite capable of meeting any conceivable Soviet warfare challenge, nuclear or conventional.

Its recovery from Vietnam was total. Thoughts of honing its fast fading counter-insurgency skills or of a search to discover how best to participate in peace-keeping and nation-building. This book examines the nature of the Soviet nuclear threat and how it has evolved over the years.

Too often in the past U.S. officials, in shaping and directing plans for American nuclear forces, have tended to see Soviet military forces and strategy as a reflection of their own stance or simply as projecting the worst plausible case of Soviet intentions and capabilities.

The Soviets adopted a Gorbachev-inspired defensively orientated military. doctrine and strategy which only allowed operations designed to defeat an invasion force former Soviet Union, three.Warsaw Pact War Plans.
