Kurzbeschreibung

15. Oktober 1997 Aircraft of the Aces (Buch 15)
No single volume in English has ever appeared in the West dealing with this intriguing subject area, but now that restrictions have relaxed in the former Soviet Union, records of the deeds of the elite pilots of the various Soviet Air Forces are coming to light. Although initially equipped with very poor aircraft, and robbed of effective leadership thanks as much to Stalin's purges in the late 1930s as to the efforts of the Luftwaffe, Soviet fighter pilots soon turned the tables through the use of both lend-lease aircraft like the Hurricane, Spitfire, P-39 and P-40, and home-grown machines like the MiG-3, LaGG-3/5, Lavochkin La-5/7/9 and the Yak-1/3.

Synopsis

Although initially equiped with very poor aircraft and robbed of effective leadership, due as much to Stalin's purges in the late 1930s as to the efforts of the Luftwaffe, Soviet fighter pilots soon turned the tables through the use of lend-lease aircraft like the Hurricane, Spitfire, P-39 and P-40, and home-grown machines like the MIG-3, LaGG-3/5, Lavochkin La-5/7/9 and Yak-1/3. The later Yaks and Lavochkins were easily superior to the Bf 109 and Fw 190 at low-level, the favoured "killing field" of pilots like Khozedub and Poryshkin, both of whom finished with higher scores than the leading pilots of the West. This volume aims to dispel many of the myths about combat on the Eastern Front.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Compact, Well Laid Out, And Informative 24. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I was pleasantly surprised as to the information contained in this small, but compact, volume. On the areas that I had expertise in, I found the writers to be highly accurate. At first, I thought that the book would be another one of those flashy paperbacks with no substance or depth. I learned a lot about the Aces, the aircraft, the techniques, and the capabilities of the Soviet Airmen and Airwomen. I will now, (in fact I already have), buy more in this informative series. (I wish that the publisher would come out with a volume on Italian WWII Aces and Spanish Civil War Aces...if they do, I'm buying them)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Yet another fine volume in Osprey's growing series! 1. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Hugh Morgan does a fine job of bringing these heretofore unknown pilots to life, considering the limited research material that he had to work with. What makes this volume interesting to me is that it goes into more detail than other volumes about the different Soviet aircraft which were flown. It's very easy to assume that all they had were MiGs and YaKs! Mr. Morgan clears that issue up very nicely. This book is well worth buying.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Superb 11. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Expect excellence from Osprey's "Aircraft of the ACEs" series. This one, #15, is no exception. A brief history of the V-VS preceeds the chronicle of its record, from battle to battle, during the War. After the massive losses of Barbarossa, the Red air force very gradually, and at great cost, achieved air superiority. The progression of improvements in tactics is covered quite nicely in the text. The book contains many rare action photos from Soviet and German military archive, descriptions of all the fighter aircraft in the Soviet inventory, bios of the ACEs, color plates of uniforms and individual pilots' aircraft, reproductions of propaganda posters, and plenty of lists and stats. In addition is information about the famous "Free French" Normandie Niemen regiment and Polish, Czech, Romanian and Yugoslav divisions; female regiments and women ACEs; "suicide" (taran) rammers; and "legless wonders" -- amputees who returned to the front and flew with artificial limbs. Readers of this book will also appreciate Osprey #6,"Fw 190 ACEs of the Russian Front" and Time-Life's out-of-print (Epic of Flight) "The Soviet Air Force at War".

5.0 von 5 Sternen Easy expression of Russia's Idea & and criteria of "Air Aces" by Osprey's book by Hugh Morgan ! 19. Mai 2009
Von Woong B. Lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Easy expression of Russian's Idea and criteria of
"Fighter Ace"by Osprey Series Book by Hugh Morgan !

Iam a American Historian. I like introduce a Amateur Military Aviation Researcher,
Seoul,Korea. Dr.Young Ki MOON.
i havve been think about definition,critera and natuure of "Air Ace"1
I know, Problem solving "Air Ace" is one of the difficult problem like "Killing Ratio"!.
Most of all, I like express my Review on this Book.
Russian's idea on "Air Ace"are based on encouurage of National Patriotism and association
with practical expansion of accumulation of interest and practical invovments of Aviation
Activity. Top aces like Pokryshkin, Rechkalov and Kozhedub become famous talented peoples
and National hero. Government also offer many practical advanges including Properties.
This book represented Russian's criteria and natures with simple explanatios.
For improvement of Raising "Air Aces" are evolution and development of new, advanced,
Revolutional Fighters, improved new Tactics and well trained courageous skillful,Patriotic
Fighters who also familiar with Team Work.
MIG-3:This only be used for high altitude rrconnaissance airplane whih can not be matched with
german Bf-109,and Fw-190.
Yak-1 & 3: useful Yak-3 independently developed from Yak-1.
YaK-1-->yaK-1B-->YaK-7--.>YaK-7-37(from 20mm to 37mm Cannon)-->YaK-9T--YaK-9D(longer distance)
-->YaK-9DD(longest distance)
LaGG-3: only Air-cooling inlined engine equppied . Germany incopetend,fighters with
many engine troubles.
La-5N :Revised with ASh-82FN Air-Cooling enginned good fighter. speed became 385mph,
became better horizontal and vertical maneuver,good operational altitude,
better tight turn made superior ability of "Dogfight" with German Bf-109 and Fw-190 !
La-5-M-71 reached 421mph ! with 3-Berzen B-20-20mm Cannon.
*****Lend-Leased US.Bell P-39 Airacobra :This Fighter was classified as funny designed, obsolute
Fighter US even competent Japanese.Although,USSR pick up this bad maneuberable in
high altitude, relatively fast(386mph),heavyest armed in US(1x37MM Cannon,2X20mm
machinegns,4X7.62mm machine guns),streamlined, liquid-cooling fighters.
Becase, USSR like this type of Fighters. after remodeling, Many russian pilots preferred
P-39 than yaks.
Among 50 Russian Air Aces:
!) !st ranking COL.Kozhedu- used La-5FN and LA-7.
2) 2nd ranking Lt.COL.Rechkalov-- used P-39Q Airacobra.
3) 3rd ranking MaJ.Pokryshikin--- Mig-3 later changed to P-39 Airacobra.
4) 46th ranking MaJ.Safonov----Hurricaaine--> P-40 Warhawk.
5) 5th ranking Capt.Gulayev---P-39 Airacobra.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Unsatisfactory and unreliable study 21. Januar 2001
Von P. volini - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I found this book unsatisfactory in several respects. To start with, it failed to leave me with more than a supeficial impression of what it meant to be a Soviet pilot in WW2 - I found the book dry and impersonal. Secondly, it left unanswered many of the questions I had before I read it, like why soviet pilots were able to score so many victories with the P39, which was neglected by US pilots. Finally, there is one damning aspect: the book is inconsistent, contradicting itself often. For instance, it will say that a given version of a Yak fighter was introduced in combat, say, in february 1943; a few pages later, a caption will say that pilot XYZ scored a kill on that fighter version in november 1942... There is plenty of similar mistakes. If you are looking for reliable references, look elsewhere. The only positive thing I can say is that there are very few studies of Soviet pilots in WW2, so this book somehow fills a gap.
