Gloster Gladiator and Hawker Hart: In Combat with the Swedish Voluntary Wing F19, Finland 1940

Gloster Gladiator and Hawker Hart: In Combat with the Swedish Voluntary Wing F19, Finland 1940

The Swedish author Mikael Forslund has written a book in English about the voluntary Swedish unit F 19, which took part in the Finnish-Soviet Winter War of 1939-40. This is a most welcome addition to the literature about the air war between Finland and Soviet Union in 1939-45 and this is the first time a Swedish author uses information from the Soviet side as well. The book is written in Mikael’s usual style with many images and individual profiles of all combat aircraft used by the unit.
Highly recommended!

The book is available directly from the author at http://www.mikaelforslundproduktion.com/4.html
or from Amazon

Best wishes/Håkan

Indeed a most interesting and quite excellent book except for one this: the English is atrocious. The sentence structure is is very "Swedish" and I wonder if Forslund realized that Wing Commander with capitals is a rank, not position. And so on.
