Every Red Army man realizes, from the example of his own family, that the home front starved, lived in rags, and worked for him to the limit . Red Army regulations call for two basic uniforms: the field uniform, and the dress uniform.

During the Russian Civil War, several former Tsarist officers joined the Red Army, either voluntarily or through coercion

During the Russian Civil War, several former Tsarist officers joined the Red Army, either voluntarily or through coercion.

Osip Mandelstam, one of the greatest Russian poets of the Silver Age, lived and wrote without buckling to the pressure to conform. He died like thousands of his oppressed countrymen – of exhaustion and heart failure in a Siberian camp. From the very start of Bolshevik rule, Mandelstam lived with the firm belief that he would be locked up sooner or later – at a minimum. He was strongly opposed to the official literature of the time, writing poetry that was extraordinary in its freedom. He detested imitation and censorship and made no effort whatsoever to pretend that he was loyal, even though this could have drastically improved life for him and his wife.

Stalin's Red Army entered World War II as a relatively untried fighting force

Stalin's Red Army entered World War II as a relatively untried fighting force. In 1941, with the launch of Operation Barbarossa, it joined battle with Hitler's army, the most powerful in history. From the army's development prior to the outbreak of war in 1939 to its peak in 1945, every aspect of its force is examined here: the organizational structures, combat arms infantry, amour and mechanized forces, cavalry, airborne, and special forces. A technical overview of infantry weapons, armored vehicles, artillery, and support equipment is also provided.

Major Len Manderstam was one of the most remarkable secret agents of the Second World War. Born in Riga and a fluent Russian speaker, he was to be recruited to the Special Operations Executive soon after war broke out and became head of its Russian section. During the Revolution Manderstam founded a school militia which freed political prisoners and as a teenager became a colonel in Trotsky's Red Army on the Eastern Front. Horrified by Bolshevik atrocities, he rebelled and was thrown into Lubianka prison, narrowly escaping the firing squad. He left Russia for Africa in the 1920s and joined SOE in 1939. He headed the newly-formed Angola section and was involved in clandestine missions to blow up Nazi supply stores and sabotage U-boat fuel. He also arranged single-handed the capture of a Vichy French Ship and its valuable cargo for which he was made an MBE. After serving in North Africa, Italy, Spain, Portugal, France and Germany, he was appointed head of SOE Russian section. His tasks included checking out reports that large numbers of Russian exiles were serving in the German Army and liaising closely with his NKVD counterparts in the Soviet secret service. He later led protests against the forcible repatriation of Soviet prisoners, giving grave warnings to the Foreign Secretary, Anthony Eden and to the Prime Minister, but to no avail. He described this action as 'one of the most horrible and despicable in British history, condemning more than two million people to execution or the living death of Soviet labour camps'. These memoirs not only point towards a man of exceptional talent and strength of character but also uncover the little-known networks of the Special Operations Executive in neutral countries.
