Admiral Gorshkov : The Man Who Challenged the U.S. Navy

Admiral Gorshkov : The Man Who Challenged the U.S. Navy

Description

This is a book about a man and his ability to change a culture and to create a powerful navy that was radically different than traditional navies. And he accomplished this despite strong opposition from the nation's Army-dominated power structure.

The Russian Navy that is at sea in the 21st Century is to a significant degree based on the fleet that this man built. This Russian Navy that sent a nuclear-propelled battle cruiser into the Caribbean in 2008 supported the Soviet combat actions in Syria beginning in 2015 and fired missiles from surface ships and a submarine into "rebel" areas in Syria can trace its "roots" directly to Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Sergei G. Gorshkov.
