Forging Stalin's Army: Marshal Tukhachevsky and the Politics of Military Innovation

Synopsis

This innovative study examines the early years of the Red Army as it developed from a revolutionary partisan force into a modern, professional institution under the leadership of Mikhail Tukhachevsky, an important & controversial figure in the politics of the Stalin period. Sally Stoecker combines her institutional analysis of the formative period of the Soviet military with an astute look at the person & political maneuvers of Marshal Tukhachevsky & his complex relationship with Stalin, which eventually led to his spectacular downfall & execution in the Great Terror of the late 1930s.
