Accompanied by Yaneta, his beautiful alien bride, Turtan travels across the stars to Cross Imperial Station. The Jax, Overseers of the universe, have given him an amazing navigational device which can enable the Cross to quickly defeat their seemingly invincible enemy, the Cen, and end their five-thousand-year-old war. But will the Emperor welcome him to the station or order the execution of both him and his wife? Turtan is, after all, endly resourceful and may learn the emperors’ terrible secret and act of betrayal concealed these past five hundred years. Even if spared, Yaneta is still a member of the enemy and may be killed later.

At its height in the late twentieth-century, the Soviet Armed Forces boasted one of the world’s largest armies. Yet, in the twenty-five years that have passed since the fall of the Soviet Union, much of its material culture has fast disappeared. Soviet Military Badges: A History and Collector’s Guide, therefore, offers the reader a timely tour of a little-known subject within the English language. In its pages are detailed the badges awarded to the officers and men of the Soviet Army, Navy, Air Force and Frontier Guards found during the Cold War era. Captured in full colour and accompanied by a wealth of archive photographs, this book examines such categories as sports badges, proficiency clasps, and awards for excellence from the start of the Cold War in 1949 through to the end of the USSR in 1991. Each section is observed in detail using the obverse and reverse views in order to identify and date each badge, in addition to charting the changes in design and manufacture encountered over time (often helping the reader identify the rarer and more valuable examples). Richard Hollingdale is a writer and academic historian specialising in the armies of the Eastern Bloc. He is a frequent contributor to The Armourer Magazine and has written numerous articles on the Soviet military and other Warsaw Pact nations.
His earlier publication, Warsaw Pact Badges, offered the first detailed study of Eastern Bloc badges in the English language. Soviet Military Badges follows this tradition by presenting the reader with a detailed catalogue of Soviet badges that can be used as both a history and a collector’s guide.
