Hardcover, 2001 Hikoki Publications...F/F...Dark maroon cloth with gilt titles-corners sharp...DJ-now in mylar...no marks or writing...In White Eagles the authors describe, squadron by squadron in enormous detail, exactly how the well trained but isolated Poles fought bitterly against their invaders. Using outdated tactics and old equipment, they proved to be the most successful and courageous airmen to defend England during the summer of 1940. In their research, Peczkowki and Belcarz had access to previously unpublished archival material, including original wartime documents, unit war diaries, personal accounts and pictures. The result is, to date, the most comprehensive account of the birth and tragic death of the first Polish air force. Nothing compares to the heroics of the Polish airmen in WW1 and WW2. The world will not ever see men like this again...ISBN-1902109732...Thanks for supporting a small family business...LOC SSM-13
