Wellingborough, 1st ed., 1989. 159 pp., photo-plates. D.j., 24 x 15cm. FINE. Spetsnaz, the Soviet special forces equivalent to Britain’s SAS and SBS or America’s SEALs, are among the most highly trained and ideologically motivated in the world today. In this book the authors establish a balanced view of Spetsnaz organisation, motivation and methods which shows that this elite force is the cutting edge of Soviet aggression and infiltration in Western society. Who and what are Spetsnaz? For what are they trained and briefed? No-one knows the full story outside the top ranks of the Praesidium and the GRU, Soviet military intelligence, but this book offers a cautious and objective examination of a real and current threat which poses serious questions which urgently need serious answers.
