I dont understand Gauporense where it is written that Soviet Doctrine assumed that the entire Red army would be destroyed and replaced every 8 months. What was the name of this doctrine? Where can we view references to this? I read that in Glantz (1995). The truth is that the soviets were fully prepared to lose tens of millions of soldiers in war. In other words, even before WW2 started the Stalinist regime was planning to wage the bloodiest war ever.
