This series of books from the magazine 'Sovetskii voin' comprises Russian translations of stories by American authors, published by Voenizdat (the Russian Military Publishing House) during the Cold War. These collections include stories not only by leftist or communist writers but also by politically neutral authors. In this case, each story was accompanied by a special preface aimed at providing the correct interpretation of the texts. The series began publishing in the 1940s and continued until the dissolution of the USSR.
