The Soviet Soldier of the Atomic Age
As a reference work, The Soviet Soldier of the Atomic Age explores the Soviet Army during the postwar period, a period of "spy mania" during which almost everything was classified.

Exactly because of this, this period has been largely understudied, and there are no good references. The book covers the period from the end of World War II until the big uniform reformation of 1969.
While the basic field uniform remained the same from WW2, the details were often altered as weapons became more advanced. This resulted in the further adaptation of equipment.

Readers of this book will be guided through this evolution.
It will cover the following topics:

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

The Soviet Soldier of the Atomic Age illuminates a topic that has never been documented in systematic way before, and is therefore of interest to both the uniform collector and the Soviet Army history enthusiast.
