Book Review: From Prague to Kabul, The Soviet Style of Invasion
MetadataShow full item record
The Soviet invasions of Afghanistan in 1979 and of Czechoslovakia in 1968 are both examples of the Soviet determination to intervene militarily in neighboring countries when their communist governments become, in the Soviet view, untrustworthy and unable to maintain control. Whereas Czechoslovakia belongs inside the traditional Soviet security belt of Eastern Europe and had been a communist country for more than two decades, Afghanistan, a third world Muslim country, is part of Asia and has had a ruling Marxist party only since 1978.
