The crucial role played by Polish airmen during the Second World War and the colourful stories of their adventures have become part of British folklore.
But very few people have any idea of the extent of their involvement, or how they came to be in Britain.
In this brilliant history, Adam Zamoyski explores the unwavering courage of Polish fighters and how they helped to defeat the Nazis.
This book is not intended as a full history of the Polish Air Force. Nor does it pretend to assess the exact contribution of these men and women to the Allied cause. The intention is to give a picture of who they were, where they came from, how they got here and what they did.
