Poles in Defence of Britain Summary


Poles in Defence of Britain: A Day-by-day Chronology of Polish Day and Night Fighter Pilot Operations - July 1940 - June 1941 by Robert Gretzyngier

To the Polish volunteers who were to fly and fight so brilliantly and tenaciously throughout the Battle of Britain, the United Kingdom was justifiably known as 'Last Hope Island'. Many of them lost their lives, many achieved glory. This book is a tremendous account of their contribution in those hectic days before the RAF began to take the offensive across the Channel.

Poles in Defence of Britain Reviews


"'An exhaustive record of the heroic actions of the Polish pilots who escaped to Britain and helped ensure its survival.' Pennant; 'The result of many years of research, sharp and comprehensive, the text is supported by an excellent selection of rare photos.' Air Mail; 'There are detailed combat reports, much biographical data, 200 photographs and tabular material in appendix form. The bravery of these pilots and at times their reckless determination made them a force to be reckoned with. They inspire huge affection; this book does them proud and is an excellent commemoration of them.' Cross & Cockade International"
