Mosg Armii
Mosg Armii
By B. Shaposhnikov
Gosizdat, 1929, 0 pp

A Russian staff officer's detailed and well-informed study of the work and influences of the general staffs of the various countries during the past century. Since the writer has turned Bolshevik, the reader will not be surprised to find in the third volume a detailed account of the period preceding the World War, in which the Russian staff and government is given merciless condemnation. Students of war origins will not be able to ignore this voluminous monograph, but they will probably view with a very critical eye what is said of the activities carried on behind the scenes in St. Petersburg in the fatal month of July.
