This book was on the top of my wanted list since its announcement, and I must admit that it didn't disappoint me. Au contraire, Mr. Geust did a tremendous job, putting together a well-organized and very comprehensive resource on the air forces involved in the Winter War - most (i.e. more than 280 pages) of this 352 pages long book is devoted to the 'Red Wings', but a chapter dedicated to their Finnish opponents is also included. From the Soviet side, both the VVS (Red Army Air Force) and VVS VMF (Naval Air Forces) units are covered in great detail: from the air forces through the brigades and regiments, to the detached units and even liaison flights level, we learn about their organization, equipment, commanding officers, performed actions, claims/victories and losses. All of this is illustrated with dozens of rare archive photos showing the men and machines involved. The book ends with a nice colour profile section, which features side views of 36 Soviet and 11 Finnish aircraft. All this makes 'Red Wings in the Winter War 1939-1940' a very impressive publication, for the creation of which the author and editorial team must be congratulated.
