This comprehensive technical reference book details Soviet casualties and losses in wars, military actions and conflicts throughout the twentieth century from the 1918 civil war to Afghanistan. The data comes from thousands of separate documents and reports from different archives, examined and compared over a number of years by an expert team of historians in Moscow, whose aim is to shed light on contradictory and often arbitrary claims about the war losses of Russia and the Soviet Union.
