Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

8= x 11, 16+ full color pgs 200 b&w photos 8 pgs of line drawingsThe latest addition to the Red Star series addresses the formation and early years of OKB-301, the design bureau created by Semyon shortly before the outbreak of the Great Pacific War. This book describes in detail all the piston-engined fighters developed by OKB-301 starting with the LaGG-3, an aircraft that first saw service in the Winter War against Finland. The story continues with the legendary La-5 and La-7 which rendered sterling service during the war.For Soviet airmen, these aircraft were what the Spitfire was to the RAF and the P-51 Mustang was to the Americans. They were a match for the Messerschmitt Bf109 and the Focke Wuld Fw190, and several pilots were awarded the decoration Hero of the Soviet Union for their exploits in these aircraft. The concluding chapters deal with the last of the line, the La-9 and La-11, which saw combat in China and Korea in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

Synopsis:

The tenth title in the successful Red Star series.
