Throughout KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn’s second book 'The Perestroika Deception' () the author decries the West’s blind acceptance of the political and economic changes that occurred within the Soviet Bloc, culminating in the collapse of the East Bloc and later the collapse of the USSR.

        “The Collapse of the Soviet Military is the most comprehensive treatment yet of the Soviet military’s final years, and a worthy summary of Odom’s decades of research on the Soviet armed forces. Students of Soviet politics and history will find a great deal of value in this impressive volume.”—Brian D. Taylor, Journal of Cold War. The Soviet writer bore witness to the horrors of Russia’s World War Two and the Shoah — and deserves a place in literary history, says scholar Maxim D Shrayer. He recommends the best books by and about Vasily Grossman.
