Men at War

By Alexeyev, Mikhail; Borzunov, Semyon; Sharipov, Akram

Moscow: Progress Publishers [1980]. 413pp. Hardcover with badly ripped dust jacket. Three novellas: "The Divvy"by Alexeyev; "In Bold Type" by Borunov; "Battalion Commander" by Sharipov. I believe these date from a period when the Soviet military felt that war fiction was not toeing their preferred line, and so they looked to their own to produce the correct line. One page was not trimmed, and as a result hangs out quite tattered.
