East European military reliability : an émigré-based assessment by Alex Alexiev( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report presents the results of a study based on RAND interviews with former East European servicemen now in the West. The study examined the prospective wartime reliability for the Soviet Union of the East European armies incorporated in the Warsaw Pact, in particular those of Poland, East Germany, and Czechoslovakia. It focuses on specific factors (such as organizational and operational incentives and alliance constraints) that would enhance or detract from reliability and considers whether and how they have changed over time. The findings suggest that, while many features of non-Soviet Warsaw Pact (NSWP) militaries have remained constant over the past 25 years, this reliability is fragile, for it rests in part on the containment and suppression of group and individual dissatisfactions that are likely to reemerge in times of political turmoil or crisis. Moreover, the changes that have taken place in NSWP armies over the past 25 years have been in the direction of reducing rather than enhancing reliability."--Rand abstracts
Polish national security thinking in a changing Europe : a conference report by Ronald D Asmus( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report analyzes the discussions between Polish and U.S. security experts during a conference on The Military and National Security Policy, held in Warsaw, Poland, June 11-13, 1990. The conference was devoted to the issues of civil-military relations and national security policy in the new democracies of Eastern Europe. One central conclusion can be drawn from the conference: Poland sees itself as having inherited a new set of national security concerns as a result of the far-reaching political and military changes that have taken place in Europe. Poland also perceives a national security threat coming from the Soviet Union, should Moscow return to a more authoritarian form of rule. Finally, Polish officials are concerned about the creation of a European security system in which they have second-class status. Against this background, the United States must clarify its policy with regard to the security concerns of Poland and East-Central Europe

9 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On October 14, 1982, The Rand Corporation held a workshop confernece in Washington, D.C., on 'The Polish Military'. The workshop was convened as part of the research on Poland and the Warsaw Pact being conducted for a Project AIR FORCE study, 'Soviet Vulnerabilities in Eastern Europe'. The aim of the meeting was to consider the role of the Polish military after the proclamation of martial law on December 13, 1981; the military and political background to the events of 1981; and the implications for the future of the Polish armed forces, both in the Polish Communist system and in the Warsaw Pact. The workshop discussion provided information and views on the past, present, and possible future roles of the Polish military, both domestically in Poland and in the Warsaw Pact. The body of this Note contains a summary of the discussion, including differences of view. Six major theses emerged from the discussion. These theses may serve to enrich current appraisals of developments in Poland and the Warsaw Pact and to guide subsequent research
