Abstract:

In this paper the author discusses the lessons learned by the Soviet Union from the 1973 Middle East War. Reference is also made to the 1967 Middle East War as a basis for contrast with 1973. The major areas that were available to the author, from Soviet open sources, deal with surprise, electronic warfare, tactics and fortifications. In identifying the Soviet lessons learned the author concludes that the Soviet military is evolving based upon these lessons, and that the Soviet armed forces will adopt new methods to incorporate these lessons learned.
