Viktor Suvorov (Author). When I was a 2LT, I read Suvorov's (a pen name, the author was a Soviet defector whose life demanded a certain level of anonymity) other books, Inside the Red Army and Inside the KGB, both excellent introductions to how the Soviet military and security organs functioned. When this one turned up in my feed, I treated myself.

Suvorov takes the reader through the Here is a sardonic and highly personal document by the author of the definitive study of the Red Army, 'Inside the Soviet Army. Suvorov is the pseudonym of an officer in the post-Khrushchev Soviet army who defected to England. No previous book by a Russian has revealed with such clarity and honesty what life is like in the Soviet Army.

Suvorov headed for the army, he says, as a result of typical Soviet stupidity. He was a truck driver with a small personal plot on a collective farm

When I was a 2LT, I read Suvorov's (a pen name, the author was a Soviet defector whose life demanded a certain level of anonymity) other books, Inside the Red Army and Inside the KGB, both excellent introductions to how the Soviet military and security organs functioned. When this one turned up in my feed, I treated myself. Suvorov's memoir of his days as a cadet in a military academy and his subsequent commissioned service is an eye-opening account how truly FUBAR the Soviet armed forces were during the Cold War. Each chapter is an anecdote on its own, but also fits into the overall narrative and ends with his indictment of the Soviet Union's ideology and imperialist ambitions.

The vendor's description of the book's condition was accurate, and it arrived in excellent condition, but be careful when opening the packaging, as they really do like to pack it in tightly.

A rather quick read but a funny, sometimes tragic and quite revealing book about the supposed military juggernaut the West feared so much for so many decades. Mr Suvorov writes about interesting episodes of his service as a tank officer in the Soviet Army from 1967 up until he participated in the "liberation" of Czechoslovakia from "counter-revolutionary" forces in 1968 as part of the crack 20th Guards Army based in Eastern Germany. The conclusion that one draws from the book is that the Soviet Army was a rotten structure, an extremely fragile institution which gave the impression of a vast war machine but was inherently corrupt, inefficient and even dangerous for USSR's national security. Most of the times the primary concern of the Soviet officers was just to impress their superiors or seem to be impressed by them - regardless of the sheer incompetence that many top generals showed. The part where the young Soviet officers were wondering about the Six Day War and how fast their Egyptian clients and allies would smash the Israeli army is an eye opener as to how out of touch with reality were these people back then. Mr Suvorov has a fine taste of humor also, and he manages to tell his story in such a way that the images produced are really unforgettable.

A clever peak into the Russian way of thinking.. despite the end of the Cold War much of this book is still valid today for its keen insight and comparison of Russian v. western way of thinking.

Read this and you'll understand why the Soviet Union collapsed. It's also a hilarious account. I had to put it down many times because I was laughing so hard I couldn't read.

This is an important book and very topical for the following reasons. Set in Brezhnev's Red Army, the author gives you an authentic, unique insight into a period obscured by geography, history and politics. This book takes place 50 years after the October Revolution and after the Khrushchev thaw. At times, I felt the translation did not serve the author well. At times, the author rambled. The author often times tells when he should have shown the action described. We see a large organization completely incompetent at what it was tasked to do which was to make war. It could not effectively do that. The vignettes illustrated here show the absurdity and frustration that the author battled daily for years. As all things head toward a culmination point for the author that was the Czech Spring. He illustrates the same problems that the Red Army had when they "liberated" Nazi occupied Eastern Europe. The Red Army had to be sent to the Chinese border because it invaded a culturally superior culture.

Why is this topical now? The Cold War is over. We won. They are gone. They want to be like us game over.

None of those things are true. Russo-American relations have never been worse. But more importantly, there are Soviets in America. America is becoming more Soviet every day in the form of political correctness, humanism, materialism and modernism. These ideas propelled the October Revolution forward and still haunt the Former Soviet Union today. Many people still revere these ideas today and as long as people give them currency, this book will serve as a warning to those who wish to heed to it.
