L'armée Rouge
L'armée Rouge
By Théodore H. Makhine
Payot, 1938, 356 pp

The author served as staff officer in the old Imperial Army, later fought for the Whites in the civil war, and is now in exile. He relies almost wholly on Soviet-printed sources. In spite of this secondhand approach, the book is a valuable compendium of information on the tactical, technical and strategic aspects of Russian defense.
