    Hello Friends I continue in a series of heroes of WWII. After that I will introduce a trio of Germans, Britons trio - they already can be purchased in MMM. I introduced you a trio of Americans.
    And not miss a superpower that sacrificed during WWII more than 22 million victims.

    Started in the clouds, where the best Soviet fighter ace as well as allied Ivan Kožedub.

    I must admit that this hero accompanies me from childhood. It is true in Czechoslovakia that last we were present mainly Heroes of the Soviet Union.
    Not, however, alter the fact that Kožedub was my great hero, the pilot and his Lavočku with the number 27, I drew in school notebooks almost constantly.
    This hero for his actions title hero CCCP up to three times.
    I believe that you will like.

    Long, long ago, aircraft were my passion. Having been fired-up by Palo’s brief commentary to this splendid bust, I Googled Ivan Kožedub and found the following, which other pF-ers might find as interesting as I did:

    I think we in the West tend not to fully appreciate the terrible sacrifices made by the Soviets in WW2, but we should.
