Subject: Brothers Armed: Military Aspects of the Crisis in Ukraine. Second edition.
Brothers Armed: Military Aspects of the Crisis in Ukraine offers an in-depth look at the state of the military in both Russia and Ukraine, as well as the history, political circumstances and events leading to the annexation of Crimea and outbreak of conflict in eastern Ukraine.
In this updated and expanded second edition, Brothers Armed builds on the critical analysis presented in the first, examining the military reform efforts of both Russia and Ukraine, the antecedents to Russian intervention in Crimea, the military and political mechanics of the intervention itself, and the nature of and grounds for the subsequent Russian annexation. New essays examine what has transpired in the region since the annexation of Crimea and assess the causes and possible consequences of the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.
With an updated foreword by David M. Glantz, chief editor of “The Journal of Slavic Military Studies” and an afterword by Peter B. Zwack, former US
Senior Defense Official and Defense Attaché to the Russian Federation. Includes maps, photos, timeline of key events, and index.
