The Red Army's organizational structures are examined, from high command down to divisional level and below, which should help Western readers to understand the differences between the terminology of the Soviet and common Western (British, US and German) armies. Soviet combat arms - infantry, armor and mechanized forces, cavalry, airborne and special forces and artillery - are described from an organizational viewpoint. This is followed by a technical overview of the equipment - infantry weapons, armored vehicles and artillery, and support equipment. These sections are complemented by informative data charts.
