This collection of texts has been taken from formerly classified material in the official Red Army General Staff journal 'Military Thought'. The results are two volumes of great scope based on archival evidence. They stand as a compulsory reference point for anyone with an interest in the operational endeavours of the Soviet Army from the 1920's onward.

Table of Contents

The Journal of Slavic Military Studies- "What the historical development of operational art underlines is expertly conveyed in these volumes…There is vivid and abundant illustration here, tables, figures and sketches of how an "acute understanding" of operational issues, in the context of strategy, can further provide deep and original insights into future war. The relevance of that cannot be overstated.
