The Bear Went Over the Mountain : Soviet Combat Tactics in Afghanistan Paperback
Edited by Lester W. Grau
Part of the Soviet Russian Study of War series
This collection of vignettes was written by Soviet junior officers describing their experiences fighting the Mujahideen guerillas.
It is not a history of the Soviet-Afghan war, but snapshots of combat as seen by young platoon leaders, company commanders, battalion commanders and military advisers.
