The Eastern Front of WW2 - Youtube videos

These animated youtube videos are, I think, an excellent overview of the Eastern Front of WW2 from a tactical and strategical perspective. They show mostly the battle plans and how the formations advanced and why. It’s very detailed and the takeaway I have from it is: always do pincer attacks. Cut t…

[Torrent] [Documentary] Soviet Storm: WW2 in the East

Sun Tzu: The art of war

I’m pretty sure everyone knows this book by now. I think to some extent you can thank capitalism for commodifying such an old work written far before capitalism, and much further than the author could ever anticipate. At the same time, the wide reach of this very short book turned it into something …

Unknown author : 36 Strategies

This short book comes from Ancient China, and is possibly even older than Sun Tzu’s Art of War. As the story goes, the parchment was discovered by a KMT officer in the 40s completely by accident. The parchment he discovered was a reprint done under the Qing dynasty of an older parchment, so who kn…

Major H. Von Dach: Total Resistance

The Zhukov Academy for Military Theory

    Welcome to the Zhukov Academy, comrade. Here we post material of all kinds related to military theory of any kind. If your soviet ever starts a revolution, or if you declare a protracted people’s war, then this is a place you’ll want in your arsenal – preferably before the revolution starts.

    All sorts of works are allowed as long as they come from a reputable source, meaning people who have a career in the military or have led a revolution. Otherwise you are free to also ask questions about military theory freely.

    When submitting a work, please link to a freely-accessible copy – so either a pdf or html pages, so that everyone can read it. Although not required, please also include a text post explaining why you recommend this book or why it’s important. It will encourage people to read it and help them know what to expect.

    We also allow works from the enemy (imperialists), as it is important to understand how their military works today. For example, an article about how the USA gets its ass kicked in simulations is absolutely welcome here. Just as long as it has to do with military theory.
