New book on Cold war plans of Warsaw Treaty on South European Theater

Post by Eugen Pinak » 11 Jun 2022 09:40

I've found very interesting book on on Cold war plans of Warsaw Treaty on South European Theater (Balkans, Turkish Straits, etc.).
Great advantage of this book - it's written with a heavy reliance on documents from the archives of Warsaw Treaty countries. And for the first time I've seen heavy use of recently declassified Soviet documents (from Ukrainian Military Archive in Kyiv).
The only drawback of the book - it's written in Russian :)
Here’s a link to the author's web-site: https://warplans.org/
It's bilingual and has some details and excerpts from the book translated into English.

IHMO, especially interesting in this book regarding current situation are plans of Soviet operations in the Black Sea and plans of landings to capture Turkish Straits.
