Cobras over the Tundra
Cobras over the Tundra

I suggest, by Everett A. Long and Ivan Y. Negenblya, with Editor 
Tatiana Long.

The world's most inhospitable wilderness and most unforgiving weather cost lives to both Soviet and American pilots. This book is dedicated to those Soviet and American airmen who lost their lives making the world's greatest armada, spanning two continents--a success, On the monument in the Siberian village of Seymchan, one of the route's airdromes, there are some good words inscribed that say it best--" We shall never forget."

Authors Notes: Author of "Cobras Over The Tundra" a history of the Lend-Lease flights through Alaska to supply the Soviet Union with much needed warplanes.  This book is a collection of high quality photographs and stories of courage.  Young American and Russian airmen had to challenge the bitter cold of the Arctic winters, and the mosquitoes of summer flying over the tundra.  This is their story.

About the Author
Everett A. Long, was a founding member of the Interior and Arctic Alaska Aeronautical Foundation, which established the Alaskaland Pioneer Air Museum in Fairbanks. In June 1990, he became the first American pilot to fly his own airplane (Cessna 172), along the ALSIB route from Fairbanks to Yakutsk. Since 1980, he has been actively writing articles on the air pioneers of Alaska and the Arctic for his own weekly column in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, aviation news publications, and magazines. He directed two searches for the Soviet airplane, N-209 (Commander Sigizmund Levanevsky) which had been missing since August 12, 1937 during the flight from the USSR (Moscow) to the USA (Fairbanks). One search was north east of Old Crow, Northwest Territories, Canada, and the other was through the ice pack off shore of Oliktok point on the North Coast of Alaska. His article concerning the searches for Levanevsky's plane was published in the "Smithsonian Air & Space Magazine".

P-39 Airacobra

The most successful use of the P-39 in World War II was in the hands of the Soviet Air Force, which nicknamed the Airacobra "Kobrushka" (dear little cobra).


Attack of the Airacobras

Soviet Aces, American P-39s, and the Air War Against Germany
Loza & Gebhardt. During its military struggle with Germany, the Soviet Union received a major boost with the arrival and deployment of nearly 5,000 Bell P-39 Airacobra fighter planes - courtesy of America's Lend-Lease program. The impact was dramatic, as the Soviets quickly adapted the planes into a lethal force. Focusing on the combat operations and daily life of one unit - the 9th Guards Fighter Division, book shows the primary mission was to protect Red Army operations from aerial attacks by the enemy. Based on interviews with Soviet veterans and extensive access to squadron histories and logbooks, book provides a rare and insightful look at what it was like to live and fight in this victorious air unit. 392 pages, 25 photographs, 6"x 9", hardcover.
