Correlation of Forces: Four Decades of Soviet Military Development

Synopsis

There are a number of books on the Soviet armed forces that describe weapons and composition. Here is the most broad ranging, detailed treatment of the subject to date. Correlation of Forces traces the development of the Soviet military over the past 40 years, decade by decade. In addition to weaponry and composition, this authoritative reference covers leadership and geopolitical ebb and flow--including current troop movements in the Third World and along the Soviet-Sino border. Hansen has also selected 14 years of critical importance to the development of the Soviet military, assesses the events of those years, and analyzes their significance.
