Abstract : The relationship in any armed force between the personnel involved and the training received by those individuals is a point often overlooked, however it is precisely the interrelation between these two points of discussion which often determine the success or failure of the overall mission. In this paper the author presents an in depth view of both the personnel of the Soviet armed forces and the training that they receive. Having divided the paper into two parts, each dealing with one of the above topics, the author examines each in detail utilizing source material from open Soviet press. With an orientation towards Tank Forces, the paper discusses in some detail such topics as the Soviet military system, conscription, officer recruitment and schooling, pre-military training, and individual and unit training. The author also presents a critical examination of the conflicts, strenghts, and weaknesses of this relationship between personnel and training in the Soviet armed forces, and presents the material in such a manner as to allow the reader to make his own determination as to the ultimate success or failure of the Soviets in their endeavors.
