Tells o MIG-25 pilot Viktor Belenko's escape from the Soviet Union, the events he precipitated in Washington, Moscow. I bought this book because I saw a reference to Belenko's defection in a recent discussion about Red China's so-called stealth fighter. Back in the 1970s there was a lot of similar concern about the MIG-25, the USSR's most advanced (and highly secret) fighter plane.

As he had done every day except Sunday during the past four weeks, Lieutenant Viktor Ivanovich Belenko awakened himself early to watch what the dawn might reveal. The first light was promising, and upon seeing the fiery, blinding sun rise, he knew: almost certainly this would be the day. Above the vast forests of pine, cedar, birch, and poplar stretching along the Pacific shores of the Soviet Far East, the sky was azure and cloudless.

This autobiography by Soviet MIG pilot Victor Belenko is an opener!! It was real! Cold War conduct was incredible as military secrets leaked between the two superpowers - Russia and the USA.

This autobiography by Soviet MIG pilot Victor Belenko is an opener!! It was real! Cold War conduct was incredible as military secrets leaked between the two superpowers - Russia and the US. Great view inside the Soviet Union. com User, October 6, 2002. I read this book twice while the Soviet Union still stood. The book is brilliently written. You get a view of life inside the former Soviet Union, inside their millitary and civillian life, and you see through the eyes of a refugee when he first experiences America. The story helps you to appreciate what you have here. Lt. Belenko is a very courageous man. 0. Report.

Sobering ,ultimately inspiring, highly detailed account of the indomitable Lt. Vicktor Belenko and his astonishing 1976 air escape from the Soviet Empire.... via the Empire's own top secret MiG 25 FOXBAT fighter. Beginning with a harsh, grim account of Soviet life in the 1940's and 50's to Belenko's quick rise thru the Red Air Force in the early 70s up to his difficult realization that defection or death was his only choice to escape Russian Communism and live life as he believed it was meant to be lived - in a freedom only the West could provide - John Barron spares nothing in relating Belenko's tale....a book that should be required reading in every high school and college in America.

This has been one of the best books I have read recently. While it is about a MiG pilot, it is also about life in an extreme socialist world and what the society we have taken for granted looks like to a person coming out of it. The book covers the pilot's life in the Soviet Union and the military, and then covers his introduction to US society and even the US Military.

It was said elsewhere that Yeltsin knew the Cold War was lost when he went to a random grocery store.

I do recommend this book for students, especially those that lean toward hard socialism, yet have never actually experienced it but think it would be their current life with even more abundance.

If you want to learn about life in the former Soviet Union, this is the book to read. Belenko was the best that the Soviet system could produce and even his life there was a hell. My wife is Ukrainian and a former member of the Soviet Air Force. Her job was in intelligence, specifically to dig up dirt on American pilots for blackmail use. She says that this book is spot on about life in the Worker's Paradise. She also said that Belenko is a Ukrainian name and she is proud to call him a fellow countryman,

An amazing read, I was expecting a more technical approach, being a pilot myself I was curious about flying the Foxbat in it's heyday, but instead I got a book about the heinous errors of the Soviet system, the terrible abuses suffered by the good Russian people and Mr. Belenko's very insightful look at America. To be honest, it made me a bit more grateful for what we have here.

Great book. Gives a good first hand honest look into the Soviet system and its flaws. Originally bought the book in 1979 or 1980 when it first came out. I've read it many times and my old paperback is worn out and falling apart.

I bought this book because I saw a reference to Belenko's defection in a recent discussion about Red China's so-called stealth fighter. Back in the 1970s there was a lot of similar concern about the MIG-25, the USSR's most advanced (and highly secret) fighter plane. This was the aircraft that Viktor Belenko flew to northern Japan in 1976, in order to defect from the USSR and to enable the Americans to find out everything they wanted about the MIG-25. A large group of US experts traveled to Japan to investigate the disassembled aircraft, and came up with surprising conclusions: the plane was in no way capable of performing as an effective fighter.
What I found equally interesting in this well-written book were Belenko's observations about life in the USSR (miserable, even for MIG-25 pilots, who were in the upper echelons of that society) and about the tyranny exercised by the so-called political officers, who constantly harassed him to say the right words and think the right thoughts. Political correctness on steroids.

This true story is a great read, giving not only the historical perspective of the intelligence coup the MiG-25 provided, but more importantly, a great human-interest story of pilot Victor Belenko. It gives the reader insight into life in the then-Soviet Union and Belenko's motivation for seeking to defect to the US. It includes a section of photos regarding the incident. Belenko's life in the US after the defection, as he tried to adjust to a totally new environment, is an interesting story in itself.

Recommended to anyone with a historical/aviation interest, or anyone who desires to know something about life in the USSR during the Cold War era.
I really enjoyed this book. It gave a first-hand account of what a defecting Russian pilot thought about Russia and America. Very interesting how he thought all the wonderful things he saw in America was "staged" for his benefit until he went out on his own.
