About this Item

Dust jacket complete. Red cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. 224 pages clean and tight. Product Dimensions: 2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 cm. The role, and the success, of the British SAS is well known throughout the world. Infinitely more shadowy, and far more ruthless, are the spetsnaz Soviet special forces. Controlled by military intelligence (the GRU), spetsnaz units are recruited, as the author knows from sharp personal experience, from the ranks of the toughest officers and men in the Soviet Army, the cutting edge of Soviet military might. In modern warfare their primary task is the destruction of enemy tactical nuclear weapons, but the training of a spetsnaz man prepares him for an unlimited range of tasks - from undercover activity as a member of a Soviet Olympic sports team to piloting a midget submarine - to be fulfilled by an unlimited variety of violent means. As an officer in the GRU - the story of his rise and defection to the West can be read in his recent memoir Aquarium - Suvorov was directly involved in control al,: manning of spetsnaz. In this revealing and sometimes chocking book Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 140037
