This book is an emotional tale of one not so
well-known military Air clash
begun in May and finished on September 15th 1939 (15 days after
Germany invaded Poland).
Isn't this local conflict between the two empires the
actual beginning of WW II?
The crash of the Japanese made them move their
striking power East against
USA and UK in the Pacific Strategic Area. This changed
the history for decades ahead.
The conflict characteristic feature is the importance
of the Air Power in the achieving of the decisive final results.
The level of massiveness and intensity of this air
battle reaches levels
without analogue even in WW II. The four months
conflict, which took part in a theatre of operations
with dimensions of some 80km front line and 30-40km
depth became a battle field for more than 900 Soviet
and 450 Japanese aircraft.
The air conflict that continued plains took part.
Col. prof. Dimitar Nedialkov Ph. D. is still an active

publications, including 11 monographs. The most recent ones

Provoked by this not so well-researched period of Air
Power history the author hopes to get the attention of
the aviation fans.
