9781844155637: Red Air Force at War Barbarossa and the Retreat to Moscow: Recollections of Soviet Fighter Pilots on the Eastern Front (The Red Air Force at War)

The onset of war in the summer of 1941 was a disaster for the Soviet Air Force. In a few weeks, faced by the onslaught of the Luftwaffe, most of the Soviet frontline aircraft were destroyed, and the casualty rate among the pilots was cripplingly high.

Yet the surviving few gained precious battle experience and they formed the core of the fighter force that turned the tables on the Germans and eventually won air superiority over the Eastern Front.

Many of these Soviet pilots are still alive today and in this book they vividly recall the air battles of 60 years ago.

Review:

does an excellent job of sharing the stories and experiences of a handful of Soviet fighter pilots...filled with interesting stories of Soviet bureaucracy, air combat on the Eastern Front and personalized insight into the Soviet War experience... captivating and gripping... an easy and enjoyable read. (Air Power History)
