022907 - POLES IN DEFENCE OF BRITAIN: A Day-By-Day Chronology of Polish Day and Night Fighter Pilot Operations: July 1940 - July 1941


By Robert Gretzyngier

Re-issue of Poles in Defence of Britain. To the Polish volunteers who were to fly and fight so brilliantly and tenaciously throughout the Battle of Britain, the United Kingdom was known as ‘Last Hope Island’. Many lost their lives, such as Antoni Ostowicz, many achieved glory and became aces – such as Glowacki, Skalski and Witorzenc. The RAF came to depend on these men, with over 100 Polish pilots supporting almost thirty fighter squadrons, most especially 302, 303 and 307 (night fighter).
