Is that based on a real story or are they 'borrowing' Douglas Bader? Nice find!

It's based on a story called "Story of a real man" (Russia, sometime 1950's), though I don't believe that story is based on any real event.

I have that book here somewhere actually, never thought it'd make it into comic book form. Cool!

That's HSU Alexei Maresiev's story. He was shot down in a Yak-7, got his legs amputated for frostbites, and later managed to learn how to fly La-5. Killed 4 prior to crash and 4 after.

Osprey "Soviet Aces of WW2", page 79:
"A P Maresyev of 580.IAP had both(!!!) legs amputated in March 1942, but subsequently continued his frontline career and scored 11 kills. Following injuries sustained in engagement with Bf110, 2.GvIAP MiG-3 pilot Z A Sorokin received artificial legs and subsequently went on to score 13 kills. L Byelousov's case was slightly different from others in that he had been severely injured in pre-war flying accidents but had managed to regain flying status, only to be injured again in another crash in December 1941. This second accident caused his old wounds to open, whereupon gangrene set in and both his legs had to be amputated. Drawing on amazing reserves of willpower, Byelousev again managed to return to operations, and went on to score seven kills. He was eventually awarded HSU in 1957." (HSU - Hero Of The Soviet Union, highest ranked medal)

11 came from his post war stories. In reality - only 8 (4 pre and 4 post) were found at TsAMO. It should be also mentioned that there were about 4 pilots flying without one foot in VVS. A country of possibilities....

Looks some of you recognized the story as well.

Actually you can get this book in english, as I did:

A Story About a Real Man
Boris Polevoi
Progress Publishers, 1973 (5th printing)
Hard Cover, 344p

Should qualify as a biographical novel about HSU Alexei Maresyev.

In terms of style certainly interesting and even entertaining, but low value as a source book.

Nice art work....but c'mon guys, finding an SS Dagger stuck in some russians back in the middle of nowhere!!! Not the kind of thing that any SS man would ever do, those daggers meant too much to a soldier to even want to cut paper with it let alone leaving one on a battlefield!

Also Sturmo pilot without an eye. He managed to keep it under wraps almost to the end of the war, completing over 200 missions http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Maresievs story use to be my favorite book, cannot recall how many times i went thru it.

How the hell do you fly with one eye. Musta judged depth by size compared to the gunsite or something.

That`s exactly why he kept in under wraps... if doctors knew... he would be suspended. Actually he was suspended... but as he was going back to regiment corrected documents a little bit http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Regiment commanded found out... but said nothing. Christ, i cant remember his name...
