Abstract:

This study is primarily concerned with what appears to be the primary role of the Soviet Navy preparation for fighting of a nuclear war involving the USSR and the U.S. in which the homeland of each of these nations is threatened with or subjected to destruction by long-range strategic nuclear systems as strategic is generally used in the West. This research is concerned with two major issues. The first is to consider the strategic employment of the Soviet fleet in nuclear war and deterrence involving the Soviet and American homelands. Second, an important by-product is the creation of a better methodology for analyzing the Soviet Navy. The new methodology will be tested by consideration of these deterrence and war roles.
