Naval War College Review


Clyde A. Smith


The Gorshkov series represents 11 articles which appeared in Morskoy Sbornik, the Soviet Naval Digest, from 1972 into 1973. The entire series was entitled "Navies in War and Peace" and consisted of 50,000 words of sustained, forceful prose. The author of the work is Adm. Sergey Georgievich Gorshkov who, since 1956, has been the Commander in Chief of the Soviet Navy and who has reputedly enjoyed the trust and confidence of both Khrushchev and Brezhnev.
