QuikManeuvers.com is proud to announce that its investigative
reporters have uncovered another historical artifact that is also an
excellent source of raw information on many levels. In the 1930s,
Red Army professionals wrote a Soviet Army war book that
spelled out Red Army combat principles, which were abided by
throughout WW2.
Soviet Army War Book explains the Soviet

warfighting, Operational Art, and the three levels of war several centuries ago. The US Army discovered the concepts in
1985 when Polish generals told them about it. (They said “Wow!”) If you want to understand how the
Red Army thought and
what constituted the skills of a
Soviet Army general read Soviet Army War Book. If you want to know the same thing about
US Army generals, read the curriculum of Harvard Business School’s “special tutorial courses for US generals.”
