Основное назначение этого издания - чтобы всякие там отсталые союзники правильно понимали, что там им командует их сюзерен, ну а нам тоже пригодится.
Вся военная терминология, толковый словарь понятий военной тематики, аббревиатуры и сокращения...
Короче говоря, все то, без чего очень трудно сделать нормальный перевод, а иногда и просто понять о чем идет речь при изучении иностранной военной литературы. Читая переводные книги, иной раз не знаешь - смеяться, или плакать, переводчики додумывают то, чего не понимают. Лучше первоисточники читать, но обычного курса английского (если только не закончил Институт Военных Переводчиков), ой, не хватает.
Так что восполняем пробелы и читаем в оригинале.
