Abstract:

The second edition of Military Strategy by Marshal Sokolvskii and others, published in October 1963, contains about fifty pages of new material and numerous changes in the original text. Some of these changes are intended to update the account of Western military postures, to take account of recent world events, or to incorporate the lessons of speeches and publications by Soviet leaders. Others reflect developments in technology, improvements in military capability, or greater realism in considering the problems of war. Domestic and foreign criticism of the first edition evidently has led to a number of revisions. Finally, a few changes may be interpreted as the result of doctrinal developments. It is difficult to say how far any of these revisions were made for the purpose of influencing Western opinion.
