Holliday, Guy D.
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis considers the factors that influence a Soviet decision to use naval power for intervention in third world countries beyond their borders. A qualitative cost-benefit analysis is described for general application and several case studies are developed using "decision points" that follow from the analysis. Operational definitions of the physical assets available for use in an overseas power projection are then offered and compared against the requirements for levels of escalation suggested by decision points that can be reasonably projected to occur.
