Abstract:

A routinely rhetorical celebration of the exploits of the 52-year-old Soviet Armed Forces, the account, in addition to touching briefly on Lenins contribution to military science and tracing the role of the Soviet Army and Navy in the Civil War and World War I, discusses briefly the present-day status of the Soviet military establishment. Some mention is made of the strategic missile forces, the national air-defense system, and the deep-water navy. Author
