The extraordinary story, heroic, inspiring and tragic, of the Polish pilots who fought for the RAF in the Battle of Britain. A remarkable and moving example of popular history at its best.
Stanley W. Cloud and Lynne Olson are the authors of The Murrow Boys. They live in Washington, D. C.
An astonishing achievement! Lynne Olson and Stanley Cloud give us a
fascinating account of the extremely well documented heroic and
daring struggle of a group of Polish military pilots and through it
they present us a glimpse of the harrowing history of Poland and
Europe during the Second World War. -- Ryszard Kapuscinski
A wonderful story, wonderfully told. Heroism and betrayal make for heady reading, and this book is long overdue. -- Norman Davies * The Sunday Times *
