"This volume is an historical survey of advisory and mentoring missions from the 1940s onward, starting from the Soviet missions to the Kuomintang and ending with the mission to Iraq. It focuses on Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation and after 2001, but also deals with virtually every single advisory mission from the 1940s onward"--Book jacket
