The fact that the Red Army developed a new level of warfighting and has
been employing it since the 1930s, totally escaped western military "experts"
for decades. They never even realized that
Soviet style Operational Art
Red Blitzkrieg ruthlessly exposes the self-serving distortions that
Western militaries have continued to promulgate about the
Red Army. Fifteen
years of research was required in order to develop these revealing e-books
that is free of typical Western confusion and misunderstanding.
is based upon interviews of Red Army defectors and informed
analysis of military data, which Western intelligence agencies and writers
constantly overlook or misinterpret.

are discussed with clarity and precision in Red Blitzkrieg, including:
Soviet Army High-Speed Exploitation Forces; Scientific Norms and Battle
Drills; Soviet Army Desant Forces; and much more.
Red Blitzkrieg is a
revelation of
Operational Art facts heretofore ignored by most western
historians and book publishers.
Review Table of Contents
“Soviet Marshal of the Red Army, H.V. Tukhachevskiy, developed the deep battle concept in the 1930s.  He
perceived it as: "...the clash of units and whole formations on the move, with both sides acting offensively, at least initially,
trying to seize the initiative and impose its will on the enemy. There will be no continuous front line and no safe rear
areas. Rather, battles will spread out in width and depth, with open flanks having to be accepted as a matter of course.
There will be sudden and dramatic changes in the situation, which will require frequent and rapid switching from one
phase of war to another. Despite modern surveillance and communications systems, commanders will still have to make
decisions on very incomplete information.  In other words, what Clausewitz described as the ‘Fog of War’ will continue to
remain a problem, because of the speed at which the situation changes...”
Deep battle forces the enemy to fight from within his own entrails, even while his brain and nervous system is being
assailed. Such conditions lead to great confusion and ultimately...paralysis. "...The goal of actions in the enemy's depth is
to erode his defenses from within, where he is most vulnerable.  Such actions help to reduce the problems of the main
forces and thus ensure their ability to achieve high rates of advance.  Their rapidity in turn helps the groups operating in
depth, as the defender will be denied the time he needs to react effectively to the threat to his rear areas.”
Deep Battle is
an essential aspect of Operational Art.”
