<span class="ev_code_RED">Red Star Against the Swastika</span>
The Story of a Soviet Pilot over the Eastern Front
by: Vasily B. Emelianenko
ISBN: 1-85367-649-7
This is a first-hand account written by an IL-2 Sturmovik pilot.

<span class="ev_code_RED">Red Star Airacobra</span>
Memoirs of a Soviet Fighter Ace, 1941-1945
by: Evgeniy Mariinskiy
ISBN/ASIN: 1874622787
This is a first-hand account written by a P-39 Airacobra pilot of the 129th Guards Fighter Regiment.
I tried to find it in the USA but even Amazon.com didn't have it. However, I was able to order it from the British version of Amazon. I believe it's published/printed in England so it's easier to find there.

Red Start Against Swastika is an excellent book..i highly recommend it. The conditions the frontline crews served in as described are quite amazing. One of the neatest things in the book is when he describes an IL-2 being coated with grease similiar to vaseline so ice would not form up on it (none of them were sure if it would work or not).

Oilburner is right. RSATS is a must read.
