The first of the new and exciting series of publications 'Air Wars' will concentrate 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 defence ensured that the Germans failed to make their planned breakthrough and after three weeks, defence 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 This new book contains many hitherto unpublished photographs and historical references along with concise informed text all backed up by over seventy high quality, full-colour profiles which show each type of aircraft employed and their camouflage and markings. For the enthusiast, historian and modeller, this will be the ultimate reference work and one that will become the acknowledged source book on the subject. Order Now

About Us

J.J. Fedorowicz Publishing went into business in 1983 as Military Book Distributor, selling other companies’ books through the mail. Many of those books were in German, and so during the next few years a number of individuals commented on how it would be nice to see them in English. I investigated the costs and possibilities, and the first book was printed; 400 copies of a 40-page biography on Paul Hausser (how many of you own that one?). This was followed by European Volunteers, the first hard cover and first translation. And here we are now, almost 100 books later, and many more to go.

From the first day, the company’s objective was to provide translations of the very best German-language books covering the German ground forces in WW II and to publish them in a format that would last many years (hard cover, on acid-free paper, with laminated covers). It appears that we have been fairly successful.

Started as a one-man operation by John Fedorowicz, the company grew steadily until more help was needed. Over time, 3 partners came on board and we added Tiger Hobbies as a local outlet for modelers and book buyers. Eventually, as times and economic circumstances demanded, the company has returned to the original owner. However, Sharron, who came on board in 2002 as office manager, has stayed to keep me in line and on target. Ken helps with Tiger Hobbies. So here we are, John, Sharron and Ken - when you call you will get one of us.

Defying the hard economic situation, we plan to publish many more excellent books in the future and to serve your reading and modeling needs for many more years.
