The Russian Navy: Myth and Reality
The Russian Navy: Myth and Reality
By Eric Morris
Hamish Hamilton, 1977, 150 pp.

A light review of the heritage, buildup and foreign policy uses of the Soviet navy, including separate chapters on each of the four geographical fleets. The author, a lecturer in military and international affairs at Sandhurst, argues that the expansion of the Soviet navy is merely a reaction to American sea power and an attempt to develop a "sea-denial" capability.
