Editorial Reviews

Lynne Olson and Stanley Cloud
Thrilling action story of the famous squadron of Polish fighter pilots whose superb aerial combat skills helped save Britain during the most desperate days of WWII. Underdog heroes who rose to defend against the deadliest German Luftwaffe attacks, the pilots of 303 Squadron were lionized by the British press, congratulated by the King, and adored by the British public. Wonderful account.
