"As everyone knows, 90% of the regiment took part in the war against the Nazis. But were the best, not just pilots who fought before. But even among experienced pilots to war were a lot of soldiers, perfectly show itself. One such was the commander of the second squadron Boris Bokach.
I think he was the best squadron commander in the regiment. Very honest, brave and intelligent officer. He considered fighting usual work and always treated it very seriously. Careful approach to the readiness of its pilots and prepared himself well. I remember that he was never out of the fight prematurely, twice came in a critical situation to help me, fending off attack the enemy.
I remember one major battle in 1951, the enemy raised in the air 40 bombers who cover 60 fighters. Their goal was to bomb a strategic bridge over the river Yalutsayan.
Timely detection of enemy radars. The authorities took to the air 44 324 fighter division, which is divided into groups went to meet the Americans.
MiGs attacked, using effective tactics, bombers knocked out of action from all sides. Hide behind their fighters just do not have time to catch us, we have successfully passed through their barriers, and went to his primary goal - bombers.
At the end of the fight in the level 2-29 we were able to break through and go up to the bridge, but Kozhedub already raised in the air last reserve - 8 aircraft under the command of Bokach. His team was able to shoot down American bombers 5, the rest turned back. Bokach himself shot down in this battle 1 plane.
