Soviet Fortified Regions Analysis
Red Army Fortifications of WW2
252 pages; 18 chapters
Before World War II began, Stalin and his communist-robot empire planned to
attack and seize Europe. Yet, they also wanted to keep the motherland from
being conquered by the hated civilized people of Europe. So the red barbarians
built thousands of miles of Soviet Fortified Regions. As described in the
e-book, Soviet Fortified Regions Analysis, the red defensive zones bristled
with machine gun and cannon bunkers, millions of land mines, thousands of miles
of infantry trenches and barbed wire. Deep underground were thousands of miles
of bombproof tunnels. It's all there in Soviet Fortified Regions Analysis, which
provides full descriptions of how millions of NKVD-controlled slave laborers
worked to build each of the Soviet Fortified Regions, so that they would bristle
with miles of lethal, death-dealing weaponry and Soviet shock troops. The story
of how the Germans smashed through those Soviet Fortified Regions is even
more amazing. What you read in Soviet Fortified Regions Analysis will intrigue
"In Soviet military parlance, "Fortified Region" refers both to the physical fortification and the unit manning it. In the
pre-World War I period, the physical facility was given a geographical name, such as the "Mogilev-lampolskij FR",
whereas the unit manning the region had a numerical designation (e.g. The combat unit defending the Fortified
Region was also called a Fortified Region).
The Soviet physical FR consisted of one or more defense centers (uzly oborony) deployed behind belts of machine
gun pill boxes and artillery casemates. These emplacements, in turn, were protected by lines of anti-tank obstacles
("dragon's teeth" and ditches); barbed wire; and extensive minefields (the landmine having had only limited use in
World War I).
The entire system was connected from front to rear by communication trenches. The command post in the defense
center, living quarters, first-aid stations and other facilities were accommodated in underground bunkers that also had
protection against chemical weapons. However, habitability of the Soviet FRs was very primitive."
