It follows the evolution and use of Soviet Russian military gear and attire between 1979 and 1989. The book is published by Safar Publishing.
The 345th Regiment of Soviet soldiers is depicted in hundreds of reconstructed impressions in this book. It also shows their auxiliary units at every stage of the conflict.

The author said, “The manuscript is nicely laid out in a modern design and lavishly adorned with photos of the highest quality, printed in full color. For more than a year, two worldwide teams worked together to produce hundreds of accurate representations of soldiers. To verify the accuracy of the information offered, we spoke with dozens of veterans, studied their answers, and examined tens of thousands of documentary photos. Our top priority was quality.”
