Though weapons may have advanced over the decades, and the form of the enemy may change, certain traits of a warrior have not. Aggressiveness and tenacity will always be important, as will the need for close-quarters (and perhaps unconventional) weapons. Though today's soldier should be lucky enough to be carrying a pistol as backup, weapons that are always there (and don't need reloading) will always have their place.
Boris Karpa's translation of the original text is excellent, and maintains a distinct tone. One can almost imagine a Russian accent as they read it. I appreciate how much work must have gone into this translation, and find myself hoping that Karpa finds the time to bring us other classic Soviet training manuals.
This was a fun book, and will be of interest to anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to cross bayonets (or entrenching tools) with the enemy.
