Hardesty's Red Phoenix is a triumph of historical research and scholarship on the fascinating subject of Soviet Aviation. Long ignored, and typically derided deliberately in the West, the story of the Soviet Air Forces of the Second World War is examined here with superlative care and understanding. Hardesty draws extensively from Soviet-era sources, carefully discriminating the superior work from the lesser, and in total producing a critically important volume which is surely the first of its type to appear in the English language. Indeed, it is still to this day the most involved and informed work on the subject available genrally in the West, and despite having been published some 17 years ago, requires no major revision to the text in light of the tremendous progress made since that time in the field. The scope of the research involved in this work is indeed formidable (I seem to recall that the bibliography is some 25 pages). But, moreover, to have accomplished such an even-handed and objective volume during the height of the Cold War is quite extraordinary. The prevailing sentiment of the time is quite obviously represented by one of the reviewers of this book; that Hardesty could have crafted Red Phoenix under such social and political duress commands the highest praise and commendation.
