"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

There are 184 high glossy pages, charts, statistics, great black & white photos, line drawings and even four pages of color plates. MiG's, LaGGs, Yaks are all here.
This is an excellent book to round out your collection of WW2 fighter planes covering a topic that doesn't get much attention in the West - the contributions of the Soviet Air Force in WW2. Volume 2 covers the bombers and ground attack planes.
Up until the fall of the iron curtain the main source of photographic material about Russian aircraft seemed to come from captured Russian planes flown by Finland, or from a very small collection of the same photographs which were used over and over again by everyone writing about the subject. Not so in this book. There are a few well known photographs, but there is also plenty of new material, new drawings and even new planes compared to older -western- books about the same subject. I was extremely lucky to buy this one second-hand for as little as 27 Euro -who wanted to depart from this book?- but I'm afraid that I'll have to pay the full price for volume two about multi-engined fighter planes, attack aircraft and bombers. Will there be more? A volume of the same quality about Russian flying boats or transport planes would be very welcome.
176 pages, only 2 in color describe these planes. There are plenty of black and white photos, charts, line drawings describing these planes. I thought too much time was spent in the IL-2 (Yefim Gordon wrote a whole book on that plane, so a lot of it is duplicated here).
I don't think the current asking price of $60.00 is good - I paid 1/2 of that making it a good addition to my collection. If you have this book, you really have all you need (and is readily available) on Soviet bombers in WW2. I'm glad I bought it, rounds out the library nicely.
