Brothers Armed: Military Aspects of the Crisis in Ukraine
Edited by Colby Howard and Ruslan Pukhov, Centre for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies
Published by East View Press, 2014
paperback, 252 pages
Brothers Armed discusses the causes, nature, and possible consequences of the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. This collection of nine essays by leading Russian and Ukrainian military, security and political analysts charts the history of military reform and progress in Ukraine and Russia from the collapse of the Soviet Union to the 2014 operation in Crimea.
The unprecedented details and background information included in Brothers Armed deliver increased objectivity to a subject fraught with confusion, misunderstanding and historic animosities. Brothers Armed presents frank and even-handed judgments concerning the antecedents to the Russian intervention in Crimea, the military and political mechanics of the intervention itself, and the challenges faced by Ukraine and its military in the road ahead, including the specter of full-blown military conflict between the two countries.
