From “Blau” to “Uranus”: Operations by the Red Workers' and Peasants' Army and the Wehrmacht at the Big Bend of the Don in July-October 1942

Voennyi Sbornik, 2014, № 3 (5), pp. 144-158.

Between July and October 1942, the big bend of the Don was the venue for large-scale strategic operations. It was these operations which proved to be a game-changer in World War II. On June 28, the German High Command commenced its main advance in the summer campaign of 1942 at the southern wing of the Soviet-German front. The objective was not only the rout of Soviet troops in the south. The opponent planned on capturing the Caucasus, getting their ground troops to the Volga, and launching air strikes at the military-industrial complex in the Ural and Volga regions. As a matter of fact, Hitler sought to resolve the issues which had not been under the “Barbarossa” plan in summer and fall 1941. The German advance on the Stalingrad and Caucasus lines was stopped at the expense of great losses in men and materiel in late October-early November 1942.

Stalingrad and the North Caucasus: Two Counter-Offensives. The Experience of Interaction by Soviet Troops during an Operation on Encircling and Destroying the Stalingrad Enemy Forces. November-December 1942

Voennyi Sbornik, 2014, № 3 (5), pp. 159-166.

This article provides an analysis of the efforts to arrange strategic interactions between the Stalingrad line fronts and the Transcaucasian front, which was defending the North Caucasus. Not long before the commencement of the counter-offensive under Stalingrad in mid-November 1942, the Transcaucasian front was assigned the task to encircle and destroy the main body of the German First Panzer Army, which was operating on the Grozny-Baku line. However, due to a number of objective and subjective reasons, the plan failed to be turned into reality.

Asia-Pacific Regional Security After the Cold War: Confrontation or the Movement Towards Consent?

Voennyi Sbornik, 2014, № 3 (5), pp. 175-186.

The article examines the security issues in the Asia-Pacific region after the cold war. At that time Asia-Pacific region was the only world region with the domination of the economic regional ties and not actually increasing the influence of the military factor. The security issues in the Asia-Pacific region have been limited to the maintenance of stability, at both the national and regional levels. Security, freedom and prosperity in the region were directly dependent on the “postmodern” principles of negotiations, compromises and economic cooperation. Most regional countries were turned into the “postmodernist” states, invested significant economic potential not into the militarization, but into the welfare strengthening at national and regional levels. However, there were unresolved regional conflicts and destabilizing factors. A struggle for the political leadership was one of the tension sources. At the beginning of the twenty-first century the "postmodern" principles in the region have been shattered, because of the threat of nuclear proliferation became especially acutely in the whole of the East Asia, in both the South and the North. In the spring of 2013, the Asia-Pacific region was the center of a military confrontation, and developments at the Korean peninsula - an indication that the East Asia countries have yet to develop the effective system of the security in the region.
