Just one question for those who have received it already: Is there a chapter about Buran as well?
I have the three previous editions and the russian efforts are mentioned in the first and second edition, but not in the third. I have read some time ago, that Jenkins planned to include a chapter about russian efforts in the final edition again and even expand it a bit.
I have placed my order back in mid-January on Amazon.de, but it seems like german amazon is lagging far behind other countries: I received an e-mail the other day, that delivery will be in April/May. Well, it's not a problem, as long as I will get one eventually. Gives me time to catch up reading some other books, I have lying around.
