The twin-engined Petlyakov Pe-2, or "Peshaka", formed the mainstay of the Soviet dive- and light-bomber force in World War II. Of advanced design and sleek appearance, the twin-engined Pe-2 was an extremely fast and reliable aircraft. Aviation historian, Peter C. Smith, tells the full story of this remarkable aircraft and places it in the context of the Russian campaign, the success of which owed much to this reliable machine. Using official sources, including the official Pe-2 handbooks, and photographs from private sources, this book provides a useful resource for the historian, enthusiast and modeller alike.Biografía del autor:
