David Glantz reproduces a lot of this stuff “Spearhead of the Offensive: The Soviet conduct of tactical amaouvre”.  The emphasis is on the use of Forward Detachments, but it has a series of handy chapters on things like how to conduct an assault river crossing.

I pretty sure I havea series of US field manuals which list much the same sort of thing for the soviet army, including the artillery norms for various types of fire mission. X rounds of yweight for effect z on target type a sort of thing.
