Summer of 1940 and the Battle of Britain — the darkest days of WWII. England stood alone, fighting for its life against the powerful German war machine. The celebrated squadron of Polish fighter pilots whose superb skill in the air helped save England during its most desperate hours — lionized by the British press, congratulated by the King, adored by the British public—is painted with an immediacy that vividly brings to life those harrowing days.

This is a story of the celebrated squadron of Polish fighter pilots whose superb skill in the air helped save England during its most desperate hours. Downing three times the average RAF score while incurring only one-third the average casualties over the course of the Battle of Britain, the 303 squadron was lionised by the British press, congratulated by the King, and adored by the British public.

Fiedler paints the bravery, the poignancy, the breathtaking gambles with death risked daily by this exceptional group of young men far from home, who fought to preserve freedom for all.
