The small number of Finnish fighter pilots who defended Finland in three separate wars between 1939 and 1945 amassed scores only bettered by the Luftwaffe's pilots. Initially equipped with a mixed collection of fighters acquired from sources across the world, the Finnish Air Force was thrust into combat in defensive Winter War against an invasion by the Soviet Union in 1939, followed by the Continuation War, together with Germany and the other Axis against the Soviets, in 1941-1944. The third conflict, the Lapland War against Germany in 1944-1945. Aircraft of the famous Finnish aces are described in detail with many photos and colour profiles. Including aircraft of Ilmari Juutilainen, Hans Wind and Eino Luukkanen among others. Essential reading for aviation enthusiasts & scale aeromodellers.
