Reviews

"... I found this book to be very interesting as it aptly describes the Soviet strategic thinking. Of course if you like political intrigue, like I do, there is plenty to spare, following the timeline from the end of World War II, through the Cold War, to the collapse of the Soviet Union." - IPMS / USA
