Hello.
Need just a book? There is a great site: http://www.generals.dk/nation/Soviet_Union.html

As of May 3 1945, there were 4,314 generals in the Red Army.
I do not remember any works in English that cover at least brief biographies of the entire number of Soviet generals.
But in Russian there are such books.
