Opis produktu:

The first of the new and exciting series of publications focused on significant air campaigns throughout the history of Aviation. The German 'Kursk' offensive, or 'Operation Zitadelle,' was launched on 4 July 1943; however a resolute Soviet defense ensured that the Germans failed to make their planned breakthrough and after three weeks defense was turned to assault as two counter-attacks saw the Red Army seize the initiative and ultimately force the Germans to retreat. During this period of time whilst the fierce battle raged on the ground, literally, thousands of aircraft were pitted against each other in the skies above Kursk, and in this superb new book author Dmitriy Khazanov looks in intricate detail at this momentous air conflict, bringing together a complete and utterly compelling account of the aerial battles, the aircraft involved and their pilots. He also documents both the both Soviet and German combat strengths and losses, charts the combat sorties, and looks in depth at how this bloody campaign unfolded.

This new book contains many hitherto unpublished photographs and historical references along with concise informed text, all supported by over seventy high quality, full-color profiles which show each type of aircraft employed and their camouflage and markings. For the enthusiast, historian and modeler, this will be the ultimate reference work and one that will become the acknowledged source book on the subject
