THE RUSSIA UKRAINE WAR: Factbook
Russia launched a massive, multi-front land, air, and sea attack against Ukraine on February 24, 2022. It targeted Kyiv in the north and other key cities in the east and south, expecting a quick victory.
However, the Ukrainians mounted a fierce defense of their country, deploying old and new technology combined with creative tactics and information warfare. Backed by covert NATO assistance, Ukraine repelled the initial onslaught and, by April 26, had stalled Russia's advance and pushed it out of the northern front, effectively bringing the first phase to a close.
This Factbook covers the first six weeks of the largest European conflict since World War II. Compiled with the most up-to-date information available on the war, this guide is designed to help lay readers understand the conflict's historical roots and the military technologies and developments of that first phase. It's also intended to serve as a useful handbook for journalists, military members, teachers and students, wargamers, and other interested readers.
Includes: The Historical Background Behind the Conflict; A Concise Narrative with Full-Color Maps Covering the Course of the War in its First Phase; A Chronology of Events from February 24 to April 6, 2022; Orders of Battle for Both Russian and Ukrainian Forces; Illustrated Descriptions of the Weapons, Vehicles, Aircraft, and Equipment Fielded by Both Sides.
A second volume is planned for release in Fall 2022.
