In 1939 an armed conflict between the Soviet-Mongolian troops on the one hand, and Japanese-Manchurian occured on the border between Mongolia and Manchuria. What happened in the summer of 1939 in the skies above Khalkhin Gol (Nomonhan)? Who did win? And did anyone win at all? The author tried to answer these questions in presented book. In the book on the basis of the analysis of the Russian state military archive documents, a large number of domestic and foreign, including Japanese, books and magazine publications that have attempted to more fully illuminate the course of air battles in Khalkhin Gol (Nomonhan) conflict. The author was able to compare and analyse two completely opposing views on the events and to build a complete and unbiased description of those distant events.
The text of the book is richly illustrated with photographs and supplemented by tables, schemes, drawings and colorful paint schemes of the aircraft involved in the conflict.
