So i went to the bookstore here in Ukraine. And what do I find? Found "Iron Coffins" and promptly bought it... Also got something along the lines "no fear nor hope", a memoir of some German general in Africa, forgot his name. "On battle courses" also a momoir, I believe from the Russian side. And "IL-2 flying tank" abouit development and use of IL-2's. Should be interesting. Got through a lot of Iron Coffins, loving it. And based on it, I still think escorts shouldnt be THAT tough in the Happy Times in GWX-2 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I agree!
They seem much tougher than they did in 2.0, for this period of the war.
Twice I've torpedoed the first DD to appear over the horizon, off the coast of England, only to find two or three in convoy behind it.... and they never give up once they start hunting you!
Best to avoid shallow waters (under 100 m) and head for the deep end of the pool!

(If it's in english of course http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif - actually No, I'll buy it even if it's in Russian )

Ya know what, now that i'm back, i will scan and post photos of the IL-2's. Once i sort out things with work, friends, girlfriend and jet lag. I also got a ton of pictures that should be interesting to the u-boat community. And a video with comments of a military equipment museum. I just gotta add English subtitles and post on youtube.

And yes, those books are in Russian http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
