Overview

LaGG & Lavochkin Aces of World War 2 by George Mellinger, Jim Laurier

This book examines the LaGG family of fighters, that were amongst the first modern piston-engined interceptors made available to the Red Air Forces in early 1941and proved far better fighters than their radial-engined predecessors. Despite technical maladies and political interference from Moscow, the LaGG-3 matured into an effective fighter when flown to its strengths at low level. Many early Soviet aces were weaned on the LaGG-3, and if they survived the early massacres of 1941-42, they went on to fly the Lavochkin family of fighters. Indeed, the Lavochkin La-3, -5 and -7 were the fighters of choice for Heroes of the Soviet Union such as Ivan Kozhedub, who claimed 62 kills.

For a more comprehensive guide in symbols, go to "wandering soul." The first three pages of results have a ton of symbols -- the reses might be a little scrambled though. I swear, the symbol guides on there are the best. She, Kaede, has literally everything possible on nook (Japanese and Chinese characters too), as well as some fancy formatting tips. Remember, this is simple HTML coding, that's all. <br> unicode-table<_>.<_>com is a website where you can search the name of a symbol and it'll give you its code. Very helpful, but some symbols aren't supported and show up as question marks. <br> ~J&upsilon;s&#359 &#167&alpha;yi&eta;g

Fell in love with a girl fell in love once and almost completely she's in love with the world but sometimes these feelings can be so misleading she turns and says are you alright? I said I must be fine cause my heart's still beating come and kiss me by the riverside, bobby says it's fine he don't consider it cheating Red hair with a curl mellow roll for the flavor and the eyes were peeping can't keep away from the girl these two sides of my brain need to have a meeting can't think of anything to do my left brain knows that all love is fleeting she's just looking for something new and I said it once before but it bears repeating Can't think of anything to do my left brain knows that all love is fleeting she's just looking for something new and I said it once before but it bears repeating Fell in love with a girl fell in love once and almost completely she's in love with the world but sometimes these feelings can be so misleading she turns and says are you alright?
