Washington, DC: U. S. Government Printing Office, 1974. Reprint. Stiff boards. 24 cm. 217, (1) pages. Wraps (stiff card covers, nearly hardbound). 8 fold-out maps. Footnotes. Bibliographical Note. Slight wear and soiling to covers. Unconventional warfare has gained in importance along with the increase in range and destructiveness of weapons. It was a particularly potent factor in several theaters of operations during World War II, but in none did it play a more significant role than on the Eastern front during that conflict. There the guerrilla movement behind the Axis forces gained in importance as the Soviet Army withdrew deeper and deeper into its homeland, trading space for time until mobilization could be completed and winter act as an ally. If The Soviet Partisan Movement, 1941-1944 is studied in connection with operational studies of the war on the east European front during World War II, it should prove to be of great value to students of that conflict. It should also prove of particular value to the Army staff and schools and colleges as a reference work in partisan warfare.
