Soviet Strategy for Nuclear War
Soviet Strategy for Nuclear War
By Joseph D. Douglass, Jr. and Amoretta M. Hoeber
Hoover Press, 1979, 160 pp.

These two studies of Soviet military strategy start with a common perception of the grave danger presented by the growing military capabilities of the U.S.S.R. Erickson and Feuchtwanger provide fairly detailed information on the Soviet military machine: its weapons, personnel and strategy. Douglass and Hoeber focus on strategic nuclear doctrine and the Soviet concept of victory through a "war-winning" strategy.
