    Well said Widow Maker. We forget when reacting to USA bashing or UK bashing or even (heavens why?) Canada bashing that Russians feel the same way. Honest criticism is good, bashing no.

      please, let us not be hypocrites; as if ''Western historians'', in their turn, could be trusted...

        Actually there are certain "Russian/Soviet" and "Western" historians whom I do trust. My criteria do not include nationality, though it does of course indicate what viewpoint or sensitivities to expect.

        I've said it before, our own R.N. Armstrong is a trustworthy and knowledgable historian. Especially as he writes on the topic of Red Army operational development. He mentioned that there are many specialised military history journals published in the USSR in the 70s that were reliable sources of information (as they published primary sources too) and very frank in their analysis.

        I've read excerpts in translation on the late lamented "Red Army Studies" website and was pleasantly surprised. My impression was the overt propaganda was limited.
