Great news, most of what was written on this conflict was from the Finnish side. I've heard it was due to scarce archive from Soviet side.

Re: Red Wings in the Winter War 1939-1940

Hello,
I have now finally got the book - as all authors know, it is a great moment to see and feel the result of several years (in fact decades...) of work!

I have been asked what is new in this book compared to Red Stars Vol. 7 - the Winter War in the Air (published as a bilingual English/Finnish book by Finnish Apali in 2011, and translated into Russian "VVS RKKA na Zimnej Vojne" in 2014).

The new book Red Wings in the Winter War is an English-only edition published by MMP Books Stratus, Poland, 352 pages including 24 color profile pages.

The basic material is naturally the same, but the book is entirely updated and expanded, all material of Red Stars Vol. 5 (Soviet Naval Air Force in the Winter War) is integrated and rewritten to the Red Stars Vol. 7 format.

Note: Red Stars Vol. 7 described "only" the Red Army Air Force (VVS RKKA), but the new book describes both Red Army Air Force AND Baltic Fleet Air Force - VVS RKKA and VVS KBF.

The new book includes lots of new material (both text and photos) and a new 35 page chapter dealing with the operations of the Finnish Air Force, including a new section with so far unpublished information about the international assistance to the Finnish AF in the Winter war) is added.

All identified errors (not very many, however) are naturally corrected.

Carl
