96 Fact-Filled Pages on the 1st Phase of the Russia-Ukraine War

The Russia-Ukraine War erupted on February 24, 2022, when Russian military forces took much of the world by surprise by launching a massive, multi-front land, air, and sea attack against Ukraine. The Russians targeted Kyiv in the north and other key cities in the east and south, expecting a quick victory. However, the Ukrainians mounted a fierce defense of their country, deploying old and new technology, combined with creative tactics and information warfare. Backed by covert NATO assistance, Ukraine repelled the initial onslaught and, by April 26, had stalled Russia's advance and pushed it out of the northern front, effectively bringing the first phase to a close.

Military Miniature Press takes an objective look at this conflict, and cuts through the fog of war to present the facts from the first six weeks of the largest European conflict since World War II. Compiled with the most up-to-date information available on the war, this guide is designed to help lay-readers understand the conflict's historical roots and the military technologies and developments of that first phase. It's also intended to serve as a useful handbook for journalists, military members, teachers and students, wargamers, and other interested readers.

This compilation on the Russia-Ukraine War includes:

  • The historical background behind the conflict
  • A concise narrative with full-color maps, covering the course of the war in its first phase
  • A chronology of events from February 24 to April 7, 2022
  • Orders of battle for both Russian and Ukrainian forces
  • Illustrated descriptions of the weapons, vehicles, aircraft and equipment fielded by both sides
  • This handbook is the first of a series of publications, focused on this conflict and others across the globe. A second volume is planned for Fall 2022.
