Red Alert: Structure and uniforms of Soviet Infantry Regiment

The authors explore and systematize modern knowledge of the Soviet Army during the 1980s and 1990s in this book 
of the Cold war. 

The current knowledge about this time period is fragmented, outdated, and poorly presented. It becomes even more difficult if you don't know enough Russian to study this topic.

However, this subject is relevant to many historians, researchers, and collectors. It presents the period of the Soviet armed forces which is still remembered through Hollywood movies and propaganda posters. And those who served in West Germany may recognize the men who appear in this book.

It will cover the following topics:

  • The structure of the armed forces
  • Parade and everyday uniforms
  • Insignia
  • Field equipment
  • Small arms
  • NBC kit


Our manuscript is tastefully presented in a contemporary style and generously illustrated with full-color images on photo-quality paper. Our teams have created hundreds of exact depictions of soldiers. We have interviewed dozens of veterans and analyzed tens of thousands of documentary photographs to ensure the validity of the material presented. Quality was our highest priority.
