    I'm looking a for very old soviet book published in the 1970s that I have lost. I think it was called "История авиации СССР 1938-1950" by Boris Shavrov and it had descriptions of a huge a amount of forgotten soviet prototype aircraft and variants that few have ever heard of.

    I've read the PDF version of the "Polygon:Ka-50, Ka-52, Ka-50N. Army helicopter gunships", from A. Mazepov, A. Mikheev, V. Zenkin, A. Zhirnov and A. Fomin.

    Its very interesting and and very detailed about the V-80 prototypes aswell as the diffrent stages of the LLTV devices that has lead the concepts to the current Ka-50N.

    Now i gonna buy it to have it as a book.

    Now that is a worthy endeavor! respekt

    My personal favorite was the episode with Smeg and the Heads, performing their intergalactic super-hit "Om" Laughing

    The only book currently on my shopping list is the next edition of Land-Based Air Defence. Still waiting for the T-60 book to appear.

    I use to watch Red Dwarf religiously as well back in the day.

    As far as books go, I would recommend Bagration to Berlin: The Final Air Battles in the East 1944-1945 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1903223911/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i01

    The title is misleading as it covers virtually the entire conflict from Barbarossa to Berlin. It's well researched and pretty balanced...the only downside is it's not cheap.

    I loved watching every episode I could see, but it was always on at stupid times or on channels I couldn't get so I only got to view a few of them.

    I did manage to buy the tape of the first three episodes... the first episode is classic... it is called "The End".

    Another reason I like to read the digital copies before I buy books is that several times in the past I have been burned... buying a book called Airborne forces and when it arrives the first two pages mention Soviet activities in the 1930s and how their pioneer work led to German and UK and US forces being put together and then the rest of the book is about the 82nd Airborne or the UK Paras.

    It was worse with the amphibious forces where the LCAC is claimed to be the best landing hovercraft in the world... blah blah blah. Rolling Eyes

    For me to buy stuff it now needs Russian or Soviet in the title...

    Man that reminds me
    I started reading this book a few years back; it was the autobiography of a Soviet Airforce Marshal.
    It was written in the 70s I think

    Basically it started off with him telling about his early life in 20s Soviet Russia; about living on the streets as a boy, getting into fights against gangs of kids who robbed and beat him, getting in with a gang who were based around the old Tsarist-era army barracks, who fed him and taught him how to steal and so on
    and then about getting taken into some sort of new government-run orphanage, later on starting training there as a dieselist and learning about engines.
    Then he got the chance to apply to a flight academy. He came out the top of his class in all parameters, and constantly. He graduated and was promoted from one position to the next; got his officer stripes and then shot straight up the ranks; he became a flight instructor at the academy (a position which was reserved for the very best pilots), and then continued to advance.
    When war broke out he got command of his own squadron having turned down some other more prestigious and less front-line position or something like that. Can't remember the details. Actually I think I got a lot of details wrong in my description.

    But it was a damn interesting book. Unfortunately I didn't get far into it and only made to it to just where the war broke out in '41; or perhaps when the Soviet-Japaneses border conflict erupted; one of those two.
    I was reading it at the garrison infirmary while I serving; and as soon as I got better I left the infirmary... and the book.
    There were so many insights there, so many things about early flight, life during those times, and some things which are being twisted and ignored today.
    For example, he was talking about how in the last few years prior to the war - him and his fellow officers all knew that war with Germany was coming; it was no secret despite the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact

    Which makes today's propaganda efforts by various Eastern European governments to equate the USSR & Nazi Germany, claim that they were in an alliance, etc... all the more cynical.




    I'll buy the person who names this guy a bottle of fine wine next time you're in St. Petersburg. I really can't for the life of me remember the Marshall's name.

    Funny you mention the Rippentropp-Molotov pact, I am currently reading a book about the conflict between Japan and Russia in the late 1930s... a critical but largely ignored area of WWII.

    The Author is American but seems to be fairly balanced and notes the bias even at the time regarding the anti soviet feelings in many (colonial) countries.

    Very simply if the Soviets had not signed the R-M pact, which undermined the Japanese trust in Nazi Germany at the time and along with their experience in combat against Soviet forces in the late 1930s they could just as easily have attacked north and to the west in their campaign to get resources that blockaded Japan lacked.

    The pact between Germany and Russia was not a friendship treaty it was an agreement not to get in each others way... you do this and I will do this and we wont have a problem with each other. Allies don't need such pacts.

    Imagine the result of no war in the Pacific, Stalins Soviet Union defeated in a two front war with Japan and Germany and a renewed Germany and Japan with oil and raw materials from the former Soviet Union plus the manpower to hold Europe.

    Very simply with that sort of result the UK would not last long and would either be defeated by the siege or direct invasion with the US not entering the war at all.

    Scary stuff.

    Many thanks Stealthflanker, this link works.

    On a separate note is there any book that you know of related to submarine designing? Thanks again.

    Actually you can use Tor for torrent downloads. However Tor does give away IP during torrent download.

    The secret archives of Kissinger: http://www.gbip.gr/book/68229/The_secret_archives_of_Kissinger

    Military/War Books-Publications - Page 2 B68229

    A book by greek-cypriot journalist M.Ignatiou. A review of Henry Kissinger’s dark role in the 1974 Cyprus tragedy.
    One the tragedies that has insolubly wounded Kissinger’s reputation is the 1974 Cyprus events - the Turkish military invasion which led to the island’s division. A situation which remains quite the same until today, making Nicosia the only divided capital city in the world.
    From his side, Mr.Kissinger has supported that the United States couldn’t intervene in order to prevent Turkey’s invasion in northern Cyprus. For more than 30 years, the former U.S. Secretary has tried to "wash his hands" over the Cyprus Issue by arguing that he hadn’t the needed information in order to predict the aftermath of the coup against Makarios. However, Kissinger’s allegations have been decomposed, since the U.S. State Department published specific declassified documents. An important number of such documents certifies that the then U.S Secretary of State had in his hands relevant C.I.A. reports which were prognosticating the Turkish military operation.

    Loyalty is my Honor - basically it is about the Waffen SS and the viewpoints from the soldiers that served in these units .... it is insightful of the mindset of the average Waffen SS soldier ... after reading the book I was none the wiser why so many of the soldiers from these units could be brainwashed into doing the war crimes they were guilty of ... until the whole Ukraine stuff blew up .... it was still a very interesting read of the mindset of the enemy
