This book covers all uniforms issued and worn by the Marshal of the Soviet Union, Marshals, Generals and all field rank officers from 1955 to 1991. It features a well researched and illustrated history of each type of uniform, the period it was approved for and how it was made.  However, this book is not just about describing and showing pictures of Soviet officers’ uniforms. It contains a comprehensive collector’s and buyer’s guide, designed primarily to help enthusiasts identify what they might wish to purchase. It provides anecdotes of the author’s purchasing experiences, including the various traps awaiting the inexperienced uniform collectors. Its contents will help any student of the Soviet military identify uniforms properly, and hopefully distinguish an original from a reproduction.

Industry Reviews

If you have an interest in the uniforms of the USSR then this is a 'must-have'. I have not come across such a good book on this topic before and the publication is highly recommended. Those collectors of USSR uniforms will find that this book is a necessity and it could help them avoid being sold inaccurate uniform combinations." - militaryarchiveresearch.com
