German Aircraft in Russian and Soviet Service 1941-1951 (Schiffer/A. Alexandrov & G. Petrov). Hard cover, large format, English text, 281 pages and hundreds of black and white photographs (many of which have apparently never before been published) with extensive captions, 10 pages of color artwork of varying quality, 14 pages of line drawing aircraft profiles and plan views and several interesting appendices listing Russian aircraft production numbers in WW I, and the numbers of various types of German aircraft delivered during the inter-war period. This volume picks up where the first leaves off and covers numerous military aircraft acquired by the Soviets and their influence on Soviet military aircraft design. The color artwork and line drawings included in this second volume cover many of the aircraft dealt with in both volumes.

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.
