HOLOCAUST, GENOCIDE, AND MEMORY STUDIES

Re: October 2022 Handgrenade

Russia's way of war has long been a pursuit of the Rand corporation, particularly since WW II.

Prof. Kuehn raises the question of space, as distance being a source to Russian power in warfare. While land mass remains something of a constant, one of the major differences with pre 20th Century History and post 20th Century History has been shortening of distances with modern warfare; especially as now realized in missile warfare as opposed to movements of masses of forces over long distances.

Re: October 2022 Handgrenade

Russia (pre-Putin) did have a military establishment that encouraged analysis and innovations in warfighting, going back to the early Soviet era. We in the intelligence community back in the late Cold War period studied their theoretical writings and saw how they were implemented (theoretically) in CPXs.
