Description

This is the first full-color photographic reference book to illustrate Soviet uniforms and militaria selected from the whole 74-year history of the regime, from October Revolution to the 1991 collapse of Communism.  Access has been allowed for the first time to Soviet Russian historical archives and to examples of actual uniforms and militaria from behind the former Iron Curtain. This new edition in paperback has some 200 color photographs [many updated] that illustrate and identify 80 original uniforms of the pre-WW2 period, the Great Patriotic War and the Cold War from 1945-1992.  These uniforms are worn by live models and are supported by close-ups of headgear, insignia, decorations, weapons and ephemera.  A valuable secondary feature of this book is a selection of 100 previously unpublished photographs from private Russian collections.
