From the Back Cover
"Harrison resurrects from an unquiet grave a huge and vibrant tradition of Russian military thought, long dormant, frequently unread, or totally ignored. This is an act of restitution long overdue and sorely needed and it is supported by a virtual cornucopia of sources, some rare, many only recently disclosed. An invaluable guide to a unique literature."--John Erickson, author of The Road to Stalingrad
"Harrison's definitive study establishes a new standard for research and writing in this complex field. Stands head and shoulders above any existing volume on the subject and is likely to remain the definitive work in its field."--David M. Glantz, author of Soviet Military Operational Art
"Pathbreaking and very readable."--Malcolm Mackintosh, author of Juggernaut: A History of Soviet Armed Forces
