A detailed photo album of Polish Air Force aircraft and equipment during September 1939. The book contains previously unpublished photos taken by German soldiers during the invasion of Poland. A fascinating and unparalleled view of Polish military aviation and its aircraft, as seen through the lenses of the best photographic equipment of 1939!
Photographs of Polish aircraft in 1939 are rare, except for the many pictures taken by the invading Germans of captured, abandoned and wrecked aircraft. These represent a unique view of the machines, colours and markings of Polish military and civil aircraft during the Polish campaign. This book contains many such photos, with details of where and when they were taken, plus an overview of the organisation of Polish aviation and the airfields used. Essential reading and reference material for all those interested in the 1939 campaign and Polish aviation in general.
