520 8  Annotation|bThe first book to document, analyze, and 
       interpret the history of the Warsaw Pact based on the 
       archives of the alliance itself. As suggested by the title,
       the Soviet bloc military machine that held the West in awe
       for most of the Cold War does not appear from the inside 
       as formidable as outsiders often believed, nor were its 
       strengths and weaknesses the same at different times in 
       its surprisingly long history, extending for almost half a
       century. The lengthy introductory study is followed by 193
       documents, most of them top secret when created and have 
       only recently been obtained from Eastern European archives
       by the Parallel History Project on NATO and the Warsaw 
       Pact, an international consortium of scholars. The 
       majority of the texts have never appeared in English 
       before, and each of them is accompanied by explanatory 
       remarks. A chronology of the main events in the history of
       the Warsaw Pact, a list of its leading officials, a 
       selective multilingual bibliography, and an analytical 
       index completes the book.
