Soviet Strategy in the Nuclear Age
Soviet Strategy in the Nuclear Age
By Raymond L. Garthoff
Praeger, 1958, 283 pp

The author of "Soviet Military Doctrine" (1953) here offers a comprehensive study of contemporary Soviet military thought, showing how earlier doctrine has been adapted to the nuclear age (e.g. massive land forces will still be decisive after an exchange of devastating nuclear blows), and how Soviet strategy has prepared itself intellectually as well as materially for every kind of warfare. An important book.
