Publication date is now March 5, 2018 according to Amazon.com. But presumably Feb 19, 2018 in England. Typical of Helion, the pub date slowly moves ahead, as they wait for enough orders to justify publication.

Enjoy!

Frank.

Well, I guess amazon.com will be sending me a message announcing that they are glad to be able to provide earlier delivery on this book. Just as soon as it makes its way across the Atlantic.

Thanks for the publication updates. I look forward to eventually getting this book.

Enjoy!

Frank.

Re: Lend-Lease and Soviet Aviation in the Second World War by Vladimir Kotelnikov

Helion is coming out with a paperback edition of Vladimir Kotelnikov's excellent book in mid December 2021.

I give this work the highest possible recommendation for anyone with an interest in Soviet aviation or U.S. & British lend-lease.

Lend-Lease and Soviet Aviation in the Second World War
(Helion and Company - 15 December 2021)
by Vladimir Kotelnikov
576 pages w/ c. 700 b&w photos, maps, plans and 32 pages of colour profiles - paperback
£35
$55

"Seventy years have passed since the Second World War yet the books and articles still keep coming in a never-ending stream discussing the question of what role the deliveries of arms and materials by Soviet allies played in the victory of the Red Army. In Russia, the American Bell P-39 Airacobra fighter along with the Studebaker US6 truck and canned stewed meat became the symbols of Allied help to the USSR during the Second World War. Other aircraft which arrived to the country under the Lend-Lease program are less known but also made a valuable contribution to the victory. The author of this book for the first time has assembled a huge volume of information related to the delivery of aviation equipment from UK and USA. Based on documents from Russian and foreign archives, museums, and veterans' recollections, the author has made a qualitative and quantitative appraisal of the influence of these deliveries upon the Soviet war effort and airpower during the conflict. The book details the routes of the aircraft deliveries to Russia, the modifications which were done in order to suit the demands of the Russian climate and specifics of their front-line use, as well as the process of the new aircraft being mastered by the units of the Red Army Air Force. The first foreign aircraft arrived in the Soviet Union with No. 151 Wing RAF in 1941, and their use expanded rapidly - they took part in the counteroffensive near Moscow, the battles for Stalingrad and the Kursk salient, and operations of the war up to the battle for Berlin and the capitulation of Japanese forces in the North China. The author includes the results of the combat assessments of the aircraft, which were done at the Scientific Testing Institute of the Air Force, as well as reports from front-line regiments, and multiple combat episodes, detailing the views of the Soviet designers and pilots on the British and American aircraft. A separate chapter provides information about the aircraft which were not officially delivered but appeared in the Soviet Union accidentally. For the first time an attempt has been made to assess the influence of the deliveries of material and equipment upon the Soviet aviation industry and war effort. The author’s impressive text is supported by nearly 700 colour and b/w photographs, 100 colour aircraft profiles, plus maps, charts etc."

“This is surely the most comprehensive study of the topic published in English to date.”
Air Modeller

“ … A rewarding purchase…”
The Catalina News

“This book is an impressive work and is an essential, unbiased and comprehensive historical document of a subject often referred too, but largely misunderstood.”
Classic Wings

“I can't muster enough superlatives to praise this supremely informative, admirably balanced study. It's worth every penny, pence, and Pfennig you have. And it enjoys my strongest recommendation.”
Cybermodeller
