Description: Members of the Polish Air Force fought through the defeat of their own country in 1939 and then alongside the French until the fall of France the following year, when they made their varied ways to Britain. There the Poles were among the Royal Air Force's most successful ace pilots. During the Battle of Britain, the pilots of the all- Polish Kosciuszko Squadron - 303 Squadron to the RAF - shot down more German planes than any other squadron. According to Britain's wartime air force minister, without the Polish pilots 'our shortage of trained pilots would have made it impossible to defeat the German air force and so win the Battle'. This gripping book tells the story of the Polish pilots, who flew and fought for the British RAF in World War Two. It follows five of these pilots from defeat in Poland and France to victory in the Battle of Britain, from their idolisation by the public to the harrowing story of their betrayal, and Poland's, by Britain and the USA as the war came to its closing stages. This is an utterly fascinating story, heroic, inspiring and finally tragic, strikingly well-told.

The Battle Of Britain Yearbook


Category: Books
Description: Marking the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, this commemorative book recalls the momentous events that culminated in a ferocious and unique air battle over south-east England in the summer of 1940. The amazing resilience of the RAF pilots and their aircraft in the face of the apparently overwhelming strength of the German Luftwaffe is legendary. From the earliest threat of invasion to `their finest hour', as Adolf Hitler calls off his invasion plan, Hurricane and Spitfire pilots guided by RAF leadership, tactics and organisation fought against the odds to secure Britain's safety. The Battle of Britain Yearbook also includes a colourful look at some of the former RAF and Luftwaffe aircraft that can be seen flying at airshows in the UK or on display in the Battle of Britain Hall at the RAF Museum, Hendon. It also charts the history of the ever popular RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight from its tentative beginning as the Historic Aircraft Flight in 1957 through to the present day.
