Format: Hardcover
In this book we read the story of Nikolai Sutiagin, the top MiG-15 pilot during the Korean War. This book is very interesting in that it looks at a chapter of history that officially didn't exist in Russian history until the fall of the USSR allowed the story to be told for the first time.

In this book we learn that, yes indeed, Americans were flying against Soviet pilots over North Korea and it was NOT North Korean or Chinese pilots behind the sticks of MiG-15s in MiG Alley. An entire Soviet air defense corps was sent to the theater, including Sutiagin's 17th Interceptor Aviation Regiment. Nikolai Sutiagin, initially a lieutenant in the Soviet Air Force whose only previous combat experience was during the brief Soviet invasion of Manchuria and Korea in the last weeks of WWII, rapidly proved himself to be an exceptional pilot behind the controls of a jet fighter.

The daily life of the Soviet pilots and support personnel are looked at in this book, which gives a few eye-opening glimpses into the efforts to hide the presence of Soviet pilots in China (issuing them Chinese uniforms!) and the morale issues which were a problem. There are quite a few first-hand accounts of aerial combat but they are difficult to follow at times. The main weakness I found in the book was the minimal discussion of the ground-controlled interception and the role radar played in the successes the Soviet enjoyed. Still, there is more than enough in this book to keep the reader satisfied.

Good photos and excellent writing. Definitely a plus for this subject!

It's very interesting to get a firsthand view of the "other side" of those pilots who flew over Mig Alley, and to receive an official confirmation of a fact we all knew anyway - that Russian & Chinese pilots flew for the North Koreans under the auspices of their air force. Fascinating views as to organizational aspects. A bit boting at times with the lack of more first-hand combat reports, which is what I was really joping to find. Overall, this is a book I would recommend to anyone interested in the aerial "police action" of The Lost War.

10 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Roger F. Taylor on September 13, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An interesting account of Soviet Russia's (supposedly) secret participation in the air war over North Korea. Somewhat heavy on facts and figures of individual air battles, it can become a little tedious at times. And, of course, written by a Russian and from the Russian point of view, it weighs heavily towards Russian air battle successes. Nevertheless, it is a good reference for those interested in the historical slant.
