Abstract : In this paper the author presents a synopsis of Admiral Sergei G. Gorshkov's view of the evolution/development of the modern Soviet Navy in an effort to clarify the unique circumstances which produced this modern fleet. He concludes that Admiral Gorshkov has been less than candid and has deliberately propagandized his writings in order to further the goals of the Soviet Navy. Irrespective of this however, the author believes that Gorshkov has given the West the blueprint which he intends to follow in expanding the Navy's capability in the future. (Author)
