Scheduled Helicopter Services - Then and Now

Product code:  50238AVI2
The helicopter, referred to also as rotorcraft, plays a significant role in aviation. That it is also the most versatile machine in the skies is beyond dispute. The helicopter’s ability to take off and land vertically, to hover, and to fly forward, backward and laterally, enables it to operate in congested or isolated areas where the lack of runways prevents fixed-wing aircraft, even those with short take-off and landing (STOL), from performing successfully. Its multi-role capability is wide-ran...

This is a compelling account of the German defense of the Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Against overwhelming Soviet forces the book shows how the German Army Group North was driven across the Baltics from Leningrad and fought a number isolated battles including the defense of Narva, Memel and the Kurland pocket.
