In the air war over Russia Anton Pozetski found life dangerous and confusing. It was easy to identify the enemy - they were the Germans and they shot at you. However, it wasn't so easy to identify your friends.
For a start, the Political Commissar and the Squadron Commander were apt to stab you in the back and they regarded the R.A.F. as enemies.
Life was going to prove even more difficult for Anton when he joined an R.A.F. squadron on active service.
