On the top back:
SHTRAFBAT (~shtra'afba'at) comes from the Russian term "Shtrafniye Battal'yoni" meaning "Penalty Battalions". It was the name given to the penal battalions that were drafted from various prisons and camps around USSR during World War II. Inmates were told that if they joined the army to fight the Germans and help the Motherland, then their sentences would be commuted and they would go free after the war. Needless to say that after the war was won, Stalin ordered those inmates who served in the SHTRAFBAT to be put right back where they came from, the "Zona" (prison).
