1-243170 Reese, Roger RUSSIA'S ARMY: A History from the Napoleonic Wars to the War in Ukraine This comprehensive account covers the history of the Russian army from 1801 to 2022. Offers an analysis of military strategy and doctrine as reflected in specific campaigns, issues of manning and maintaining an army, and relations between army and society, at home and in the near abroad. Identifies themes that weave their way through this military history: the adoption of a strategy to maintain a defensive posture in the West, an offensive strategy in the Balkans, and an expansionist policy in the East; maintenance of a large standing army; and a consistent unease about the army's and non-Russian minorities' loyalty to the state.1 vol, 240 pgs 2023 US, UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA PRESS

1-243130 Taylor, Blaine HERMANN GOERING: From Madrid to Warsaw and Beyond, 1939 Discusses the career of Hermann Goering, Hitler's one-time successor and leader of the Luftwaffe. As air force commander-in-chief, he bathed in the glory of the Condor Legion's victory in Spain in April and the Luftwaffe's decisive role in the Blitzkrieg of Poland in September.
