In This Review


By Aleksandr A. Svechin
East View, 1991
374 pp. $44.95

Svechin's works and life were lost in the purges of the 1930s, but he has been rediscovered, not least by Andrei Kokoshin, the chief civilian in Russia's new defense ministry. This book, originally written in 1927, is remarkably free of Soviet dogma and prophetic in its foreshadowing of civil-military relations.
