Abstract:

In October 1963, the Military Publishing House of the Soviet Ministry of Defense brought out a revised edition of Voennaia Strategiia. Four months later RAND distributed Leon Goures Notes on the Second Edition of Marshal V. D. Sokolevskiis Military Strategy AD-600 081. The Goure study made a preliminary appraisal of the second edition on the basis of selected textual comparisons between it and the original work. The present study goes further. It examines the major factors underlying current trends in Soviet strategy, and it surveys and evaluates recent Soviet military thought using a wide range of published Soviet materials, including of course both the first and second editions of the Sokolovskii book.
