Military Doctrine and Strategy in the Former Soviet Union: Implications for the Navy
Tritten, James John
MetadataShow full item record
Report considers the debate over military doctrine and strategy in the final days of the Soviet Union and the first six months of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and Russian Federation. Since the direction that the CIS and former Soviet republics will take should be cast in terms of their immediate past, a brief review of recent Soviet history is warranted. The report then shifts to an analysis of the organizational development of the armed forces themselves. Having considered these overall questions, the report then outlines their implications on the Navy. The source material for this report is the open- source literature and statements of authorized spokesmen in the former Soviet Union.
