Can anybody recomend a decent book that covers Russian Aircraft of the WW2 period, along the same lines as Hitlers Luftwaffe by salamander books?

"They Gave All Their Tommorrows So That We Can Have Our Todays"

"Soviet Combat Aircraft of the Second World War: Single-Engined Fighters"
by Yefim Gordon, Dmitri Khazanov

I dont know if you've come across this yet, as they are pretty popular amongst the posters here, but the books "black cross/Red Star" volumes 1 and 2 (soon to be 3) are very superb, you get a real good look at the whole Eastern Front air war, you probably wont get as much of a full "pilots eye view" of the whole war though there are lots of snipits of information on that subject. Overall these books are very information rich and worthwhile to anyone interested in the subject.

Oh the first edition is out of print but you should still be able to get a hold of a copy from online auctions etc...
