Naval art and the prism of contemporaneity : Soviet naval officers and the lessons of the Falklands conflict by Jacob W Kipp ( Book )
3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Soviet naval officers perceive the Falkland Islands War as one manifestation of increasing rivalry among capitalist states of different levels of development. This circumstance suggests greater Soviet efforts to undermine the U.S. alliance system and to increase its problems of coalition management. Two other trends which the Falklands seemed to confirm are: the emergence of the possibility of resource wars between the North and South, and the increased reliance of the West upon an 'oceanic strategy'. Both trends will be used to promote the growth of the Soviet Navy. Another ground for Soviet naval officers' satisfaction with the Falklands Conflict was precisely what can be learned about trends in warfare at sea. The Falklands Conflict offers major dividends to its naval and military researchers. The research apparatus of the General Staff of the Soviet Armed Forces are now making a sustained effort to reshape their perceptions about modern warfare on the basis of the lessons derived from the Falklands Conflict. Judging by the articles in Morskoi sbornik, this effort will be professionally competent, extensive and sustained. While Soviet military thinkers warn that it is necessary to take into account the peculiarities of all such local wars, they nonetheless see them as having 'an importance for the perfection of military theory'. The Falklands Conflict, like other local wars, will allow them to perfect their conception of modern warfare, i.e, 'that they are grasped through the prism of contemporaneity.

If war comes tomorrow? : the contours of future armed conflict by M. A Gareev ( )
4 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Military affairs have been affected by major changes in recent years. The bipolar world of two superpowers has gone. The Cold War and the global military confrontation that accompanied it have ended. A new military and political order has emerged in the world, but the world has not become more stable; indeed, wars and armed conflict have become much more common.Forecasting the contours of future armed conflict is no easy task at such times, but this is the primary objective of If War Comes Tomorrow? Focusing on the impact of new technologies, General Gareev considers whether wa

Barbarossa, Soviet covering forces and the initial period of war military history and airland battle by Jacob W Kipp ( Book )
5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The issues surrounding the German attack upon the Soviet Union in June 1941 continue to attract the attention of historians and military analysts. The nature of the Soviet response to that attack has, as recent articles in Air University Review suggest, set off heated polemics. The appearance of Bryan Fugates Operation Barbarossa with its assertion that the Soviet High Command did, indeed, have a 'realistic plan or operative concept for coping with the situation' marked a major departure from conventional Western scholarly interpretation of the events leading up to the invasion. The response by Williamson Murray and Barry G. Watts that Fugate was 'inventing history' to find an unsuspected Soviet military genius where there was none confirms the controversial nature of the issue. These authors underscore the impact of surprise and tend to treat it as systemic and general. The Soviet Union, they argue, did not expect the blow and was unprepared for it. Soviet military doctrine an field regulations spoke of the offensive, while neglecting the defense. In assessing Soviet perception of the German threat, the authors are at odds not only with Fugate. EarlyZiemke has recently pointed to the December Conference sponsored by the Main Military Council and the January 1941 war games, which led to Zhukov's appointment as Chief of the General Staff, as explicitly directed to the problem of assessing the German threat in light of the lightning victories in Poland and the West

Mass, mobility, and the Red Army's road to operational art, 1918-1936 by Jacob W Kipp ( Book )
4 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first requirement for this paper is to deal with the problem of exactly what we mean by the three terms employed in the title. Mass in the Russian context has a double meaning. To some it unquestionably calls to mind the image of the Russian steamroller, which provided nightmares of Schlieffen and his planners in the decades before World War I.A simple process of extrapolation based upon the size of Russia's standing army, the number of conscripts being inducted in any year under the universal military service statute, and the Empire's total population provided a rough estimate of the total number of rifles and bayonets which the tsar could put into the field. The tsarist government's adoption of the Grand Program for rearmament in 1912 thus threatened to change the military balance on the continent. Those forces would mobilize slowly, but, like a steamroller, their momentum would carry all before them.
