Lentolaivue 24 (Osprey Aviation Elite 4) by Kari Stenman

Lentolaivue 24 (Osprey Aviation Elite 4) by Kari Stenman is an a unit history of this Air Force squadron. They participated in both the Winter war and the Continuation war. I'm always interested in more material on the winter war Finland's ability to stop the Russian advance is one of the more interesting topics in military history. This book does an excellent job describing the actions as well as the technical specifications of the squadron. There's quite a bit of information even history's of particular airframes. On every page is a picture which is standard for Osprey. There are personal accounts drawn from primary source material from the archives about particular attacks.

Highly recommended!

Is available through Abebooks.
