The Growth of the Red Army

By D. Fedotoff White

Princeton University Press, 1944, 486 pp.

The author, formerly an officer in the Imperial Russian Navy, analyzes the origins and development of the Red Army, not only as a remarkable fighting machine but as an extraordinary political and social creation. He strives, not unsuccessfully, to achieve historical impartiality and scholarly accuracy.
