      In February , street protests in Kiev and other Ukrainian cities led to the ousting of the Russian-backed President Yanukovych. The so-called Euromaidan Revolution saw many changes to Ukraine's constitution, but the violent reaction in the east and south of the country led to armed counter-revolution, unofficially backed by Russia/5(19).   In his book The Shadow War: Inside Russia’s and China’s Secret Operations to Defeat America, Jim Sciutto examines the low-boil struggle over the international order.

    But all know that the war to their east could go nuclear at any second — for the nuclear option is written in to every major phase of Russia’s current military and war doctrine. More book.   President Vladimir Putin’s grand plans to celebrate the 75th anniversary of victory in World War II, and his own leadership, may be foiled by the coronavirus, which also threatens war heroes.

A quick little review: It turns out that this book is based on a brilliant World War II documentary that I watched some years ago. Somehow I never made the connection: the documentary is called Russia's War: Blood Upon the Snow, whereas the book is only Russia's War.

Now, what Russias war. book did while reading this book was to read one chapter (they are each around pages long), and then to watch the /5. The book begins well before the war, just following the Bolshevik Revolution, and I found these chapters, along with the other chapters and segments that touch on the partisan war effort, the big personalities of the war in the east, and the years after the war most by: In Russia's War:Richard Overy re-creates the Soviet Union's apocalyptic struggle against Nazi Germany, from the point of view both of the troops and of the ordinary civilians.

In the course of human history there has probably been no more terrible place than Eastern Europe in Estimates of total Soviet military and civilian deaths in the period now stand at more than 25 /5(). There is no mention of the television series on the book's jacket.

The 'Russia's War' television documentary was Russias war. book prestige production, with ten 52 minute episodes. Some of the episodes were introduced by Henry Kissinger. Nigel Hawthorne served as the narrator.

RICHARD OVERY has written and edited more than thirty books, including Why the Allies Won, Russia’s War, The Twilight Years,and The Bombers and the Bombed. He is a professor of history at the University of Exeter, U.K.

`Russia's War' is a riveting, fact-filled history of the Russian experience in WW2. British historian, Richard Overy takes the reader first through the pre-war years in Soviet Russia, and continues with a chronological account of the war on the eastern by: William L.

Shirer's quote on the dust jacket remains true after 50 years: "The best book we probably shall ever have in English on Russia at war." I suspect it may be the best single book on Russia at war regardless of language.

Werth, an English journalist born in St. Petersburg, spent most of the year reporting the war from Russia/5(34). As Admiral James Stavridis says in his forward for the book, “ War with Russia lays out a plausible and startling case of the potential peril ahead – it deserves a serious reading indeed.” Major James King is currently serving as a Brigade Senior Intelligence Officer (S2).

Before the war in Chechnya started, the United States and Russia had been successfully cooperating on issues crucially important for the U.S. and international security such as the Nunn-Lugar program (links to postings: Briefing Book # and Briefing Book #) that helped Russia safely dismantle its nuclear weapons under the START I Treaty.

This book provides a chronicle of Ukraine’s Maidan and Russia’s ongoing war, and puts forth an analysis of the Revolution of Dignity from the perspective of a participant observer.

Many of the major trends of international politics in the twenty-first century are best seen from Ukraine. RUSSIA'S WAR is the epic account of the greatest military encounter in human history. In a vivid, often shocking narrative, Richard Overy describes the astounding events of in which the Soviet Union, after initial catastrophes, destroyed Hitler's Third Reich 4/5(6).

Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller 'You fail to read this book at your peril' - Admiral James G Stavridis, US Navy, former Supreme Allied Commander Europe. Closely modelled on his NATO experience of war gaming future conflicts, War With Russia is a chilling account of where we are heading if we fail to recognise the threat posed by the Russian s: “Roots of Russia’s War in Ukraine shows the primacy of economic factors and cultural/intellectual choices in leading Russia and the EU to the brink of confrontation without necessarily realizing the gravity of the crisis until it was too late.

Russia's War: Blood Upon the Snow brings to life the story of the people of the Soviet Union during World War II who struggle to survive the tyrannical reign of Joseph Stalin. A compelling story of dictatorship, bloody battles, and endless courage as the Soviet people combat not only Hitler and the Germany Army, but their own leader as well.

Edwards recounts events, both shameful and heroic, with insight, conviction and considerable wit.—Publishers Weekly On Novemthe Soviet Union's Red Free shipping over $ "Roots of Russia’s War in Ukraine" presents four perspectives on the origins of the ongoing war in Ukraine, concentrating on Russian motivations and intentions.

What propelled Russia to send troops into Crimea and why did the conflict spread to eastern Ukraine with Russian support. What does the crisis say about Russian political, economic, and social priorities, and how does it reflect EU. "There are rich rewards in [the book's] fascinating insights, well balanced judgements and original, sometimes provocative arguments, which are bound to stimulate debate for years to come."—Orlando Figes, Sunday Times “Russia’s Cold War is an exciting ride through post-war history.

All told, therefore, War with Russia is a curate’s egg of a book. The central messages that Russia should no longer be treated as a sideshow or distraction, indeed that it is posing an increasingly obvious challenge to the European security architecture, and that warfare is evolving – and that combined, all this needs serious.

The evil gloating trope is much in evidence in General Sir Richard Shirreff’s War With Russia, which is at once a literary disaster, a pacy techno-thriller and a clarion call to the west.Russia’s Military Strategy and Doctrine is designed to educate Russia watchers, policymakers, military leaders, and the broader foreign policy community about the Russian Armed Forces and.
