The highly anticipated, most extensively updated, and expanded new edition of Black Cross Red Star Volume 1 has arrived!
When the first edition of Volume 1 was published twenty years ago, it made a deep impression on the World War II readership. It sold out in a year, and hasn’t been reprinted.
However, the first edition of Volume 1 was based on research undertaken by the authors in the late 1990s. Since then Christer Bergström has continued his in-depth research into the subject. As a result, this new edition is essentially a new book. The research in the second edition is of a much higher quality, contains 100% more text, and a large number of previously unpublished new photos (many from photo albums of veteran pilots).
Christer Bergstrom. Hard cover. 12″ x 8.5″. English text. 384 pages. Aircraft color profiles. Large, clear maps. The quality of the graphics in the new volume is comparable to Volumes 4 & 5, as in subsequent volumes of this series.
