Read the home page:-

"There will follow a second, much revised edition of Black Cross/Red Star, Volume 1, after Volume 3 has been published!"

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!

"Any news about the second print of the part 1?"

I can tell you that I did so much editing on that one, that it's going to be more or less a completely new book, compared with the first edition. Plus that there will be a brand new high-qualoty printing, with color profiles and color maps, etc - like with the forthcoming Vol. 3.

CzechTexan, any chance you'd consider sharing such missions with me?

Mee too!! I want bad. Airfield size and placement and usage would be Awsum study and for FB mission/campaign building too.


Any book out there mention Operation Mars, the larger companion to the Stalingrad operation but this one failed miserably? Glantz wrote this article below, although I have not read any Glantz books...

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Most wellcome news !!! Can't wait! The volumes 1 and 2 I already have are easily among the very best books on airwar in general and are of course totally indispensable as Eastern front material.

"Any book out there mention Operation Mars, the larger companion to the Stalingrad operation but this one failed miserably?"

Black Cross/Red Star, Vol. 4 will deal with the air operations during Operation Mars in close detail. I have just completed those chapters in that manuscript.

The next Black Cross/Red Star volumes will appear in the following order:

Vol. 3
Vol. 1, edition 2
Vol. 4

When? Please ask my publisher. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif psst...i'll trade my missions for your book...just kidding http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Thanks CH.

In your Volume 1 example text, you talk about how late 1941 German fighters would fly to primitive forward airstrips so they could intercept Russians in time, and at sundown they flew back to larger rear bases cos they had not been able to intercept in time before. We cannot do this in FB, as the airplanes are mostly programmed to take off and land at the large US Army Air bases on FB maps (well they look like they are USAAF bases).

Lexx, that could be done fairly easily. If there only was a command that can add fuel and ammunition to a landed aircraft, then you could pick any grassfield as such a forward landing strip - which is what the Germans did.

Have you read about such isolated landing strips in the Graf & Grislawski book? (I have the one at Galugayevska in mind...)
