March 12, 2019


The Russian Military Resurgence BUFFALO, NY - History Professor René De La Pedraja, PhD, tells the fascinating story of the decline and reinvention of the Soviet forces in his latest book The Russian Military Resurgence: Post-Soviet Decline and Rebuilding, 1992-2018.

Through lively accounts and maps, De La Pedraja chronicles the lowest points for the Soviet military (namely The First Chechnya War), the subsequent stirrings of a new Russian army and The Five Day War with Georgia, which marked Russia’s return to world power status. 

The Russian Military Resurgence is De La Pedraja’s first book on Russia.  He has published extensively on Latin America.
