This new edition of Volume 2 is so heavily updated and expanded that it more or less is a completely new book!
The first edition was based on the amount of research undertaken by the authors in the late 1990s. Christer Bergström has continued his in-depth research into the subject ever since then, and the result is a new edition of Black Cross/Red Star, Volume 2 that exceeds the first edition regarding the quality of the material to the point that the new edition actually is a completely new book.
The first edition contained a maximum of 100,000 words. The second edition not only has much higher quality as far as the research is concerned but also contains twice that word count, a very large number of absolutely new photos (many of which are from pilot veterans’ photo albums and have never been published before), printed in the same high quality as in Volumes 1, 4 and 5.
