ABSTRACT
This article reports that within one year, if the Kremlin announcement of May 14 is accurate, there will be 1,840,000 fewer men in uniform in the Soviet Union than there were in 1955. In carrying out this new reduction of armed forces and armaments the Soviet Government proceeds from the premise that the forces of peace have become considerably stronger. Beyond this military need for modernization, the economic objectives to which the collective leadership is committed require a shift in manpower from military to civilian employment.
