MiG aircraft since 1937
MiG Aircraft since 1937 reunites Bill Gunston, and Moscow-based Yefim Gordon, who previously worked together on Yakovlev Aircraft since 1924, also in the Putnam series. With their contacts in Russia, the authors have been allowed unprecedented access to the archives of both the former Soviet Union's design bureaux and the MiG company itself. As a result, they present here the first definitive and fully accurate work of reference on all the MiG designs, complete with hundreds of photographs and drawings - several of which have never been published before - as well as previously unrecorded details of MiG variants.
