Very similar in appearance, performance and role to the ill-fated British Fairey Battle, the Ilyushin Shturmovik was a very much more successful aeroplane Ð one that formed the backbone of the Soviet air force for much of the war.

Yefim Gordon and Sergey Komissarov have written a detailed history of this most important of all World War Two Russian aircraft. Including much detailed discussion of the design and the development of both the Il-2 and the Il-10, this book will be welcomed by all enthusiasts of Russian aviation. The huge number of archive photographs, and coloured profiles, only go to make it more irresistible.
