I've always understood Soviet Conventional Doctrine in the event of War with the west constitutes a massive armored/motor rifle invasion of Europe via the Fulda Gap. The aim would be to take Germany, and force the European leadership to sign peace before the use of nuclear weapons occurred. How much of that is true?

There were a number of different plans.
Soviet military doctrine rested in the idea that if war was inevitable, it should be fought on foreign ground, and by attacking as rapidly and aggressively as possible.

If a nuclear engagement seemed inevitable, as far as I know, the intention was to hit them with everything there was, since there may not be a second chance.
Soviet America is Free America!

Under communism, there is no freedom; you are not free to live in poverty, be homeless, to be without an education, to starve, or to be without a job

nuclear weapon would had been used from the beginning of the hostility.
Mankind is divided into rich and poor, into property owners and exploited; and to abstract oneself from this fundamental division; and from the antagonism between poor and rich means abstracting oneself from fundamental facts.
