Product description

Dramatic stories of the operations and members of a Polish Squadron in the Second World War, based on fact, by a Polish Flying Officer, Janusz Meissner, under the nom de plume Flight-Lieutenant Herbert. Meissner was a top ranking pilot in pre-war Poland who became a rear gunner in a Wellington bomber and his aim in writing the book was "to tell the reader what sort of people airmen are, how they feel and think, what they experience in the air and on the ground, and how they speak of these experiences themselves".

Fourteen dramatic woodcut illustrations. Blue board covers (no dust jacket) with title etc. in gilt on spine. Cover in only fair condition with bumping to corners, soiling and remains of library stamp on front. Library stamps inside, some pages stained and one Illustration detached with frayed edges. Despite condition, a fascinating read. Scarce.
