article description
The word "appraisal," in its dictionary sense of value setting, perhaps overĀ­states the intent of this essay. This paper deliberately aims at laying out, in a categorical and even in a provocative way, as many aspects of Soviet maritime capability-with particular emphasis on the Soviet Navy--as possible. It does not seek to convince; that will be for a later effort. It does seek to open the way lo a relevant examination of a complex situation of great import to the United States.
