The Forgotten Few: The Polish Air Force in the Second World War

The crucial role played by Polish airmen during the Second World War and the colourful stories of their adventures have become part of British folklore.

But very few people have any idea of the extent of their involvement, or how they came to be in Britain.

In this brilliant history, Adam Zamoyski explores the unwavering courage of Polish fighters and how they helped to defeat the Nazis.

By the beginning of 1941, there was a fully fledged Polish Air Force operating alongside the RAF.
