The Book :

Years later the painting was reproduced as a book cover at the request of Captain Igor Kozyr (rtd) who was co authoring with an American, John L. Haynes to produce the book called “Frozen Fury“, a personal account of convoy PQ13, ISBN 978-1-4512-0156-7 (http://gangut.su/) is available in English and Russian versions.


Igor Kozyr asked me if he could use my PQ 13 painting, an early example of my art, produced for and with an eye witness, as the cover for the Russian version of the book (ISBN 9-785904-180379).
