    Try this:
    DTIC Collections

    There is also a sequel, subtitled "The Untold Story". Both are quite good.

    For general Cold War information (including battle plans), try this:

    http://www.isn.ethz.ch/php/

    Came across it in my research. Looks like it has a lot of good articles.

    From the CIA, "Soviet Strategies and Capabilites for Multi-theater War."

    Go here,

    http://www.foia.cia.gov/

    and search for "Soviet Strategies." (The document should be on page 3 or 4.)

Salamander Press published a whole slew of war-tech related books (fighters, tanks, ships, the PLA, etc.).
    That's a good idea. I've been meaning to go looking for used books stores and this seems like a good excuse.

    Take care,

    So far, I'm about half way through, it's pretty interesting. Most of what I've read has dealt with the political situation, planning, and force overviews. The attack has just begun and the initial land war has been covered. The discussion is more operational, but does talk about specific tactics used by both NATO and WP. It appears that he breaks down the naval and air components in more detail as well, but I haven't made it there yet.

    Thanks nemo,

    I actually found the Parallel History Project late last night and haven't had a chance to look at it yet. I'll check out the other one today.

    Take care,

    Thanks Herman. I'll see if I can find it.
