About This Item

The Bodley Head. Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. 1986. First Edition. Hardcover. 0370305353 . Hardcover is clean & tight, with no markings. Jacket has very light edgewear, light scuffing, sticker residue on front, 292 pages. Numerous b/w photos.In this volume the authors explore in detail the development of the Soviet ground forces, their political and military organisation, their training, tactics and weaponry. At one time they were a formidable force and a serious challange to Nato forces. Colonel Seaton is recognized as one of the Worlds foremost authorities on Russian and German political and military history. This work cuts through all the miasma of myth and controversy surrounding the Red Army. We come to see how a synthesis of Tsarist tradition, German example, and revolutionary pressure combined to mold the army in the years following the Bolshevik takeover, and how such conflicting figures as Trotsky and Stalin put their personal stamps on the new force. ; 000983; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall .
