Blitzkrieg in September 1939, and later in France in 1940, the Polish Air Force - flying British and American made fighters and bombers out of England in their own units - made a tremendous contribution to the Allied air victory. The PAFs gallant, lonely fight in September 1939 inflicted the first losses on the mighty Luftwaffe and allowed Britain a nine month grace to strengthen her air defenses. Their part in the Battle of Britain became legend, and its contribution to the early RAF bomber offensive on Germany was equally great.

The Lotnictwo Wojskowe, or Polish Air Force, was equipped with obsolescent aircraft in September 1939 and was quickly decimated by the larger and more modern Luftwaffe following Germany's invasion of Poland. Many Polish fighter pilots fled their native country, however, and would find service fighting against Nazi German aggression in France and later Great Britain. "The Polish Air Force at War: The Official History 1939-1943" by Jerzy Cynk is the first of two volumes covering the Polish air force during World War II. The book consists of three parts. First, an introduction covers the birth of the Polish Air Force following World War I, the Russian-Polish conflict of the interwar period, and the period leading up to the German invasion of September 1939. Next, Part I includes chapters on the battle against the Luftwaffe in September 1939 and the formation of an independent Polish Air Force in France. Lastly, Part II includes chapters on the formation of the PAF in Great Britain, fighter operations, army cooperation activities, and bomber operations during the period from 1940 to 1943.

Overall the book is very comprehensive, and well-written. It includes sufficient numbers of photographs, tables, and maps to help explain the subject matter.

Its biggest weakness is its huge size - it's not clear who will fork out the cash to purchase the two large volumes and it is truly the dedicated enthusiast who is willing to read through both volumes to the end (both together total over 660 pages). I personally would have preferred a pared-down single volume covering the entire 1939-1945 period to make the book slightly more readable. Moreover, the book clearly required extensive research but lacks a bibliography, leaving one wonder where Cynk got all his information from.

Overall however for a comprehensive look at the Polish Air Force this is the definitive reference source.

I am extremely pleased and excited about this book.primarily because I am of Polish origin,and also that my late father served with the Polish Air Force in 1939,before eventually making his journey to England and continuing the war serving with No 304 Polish Bomber Squadron RAF.I know some details of his service record in the UK,but nothing of his time during the short conflict in September 1939.You can imagine my amazement when I turned over a page,and saw a picture of a group of airmen in Polish flying suits in October 1938,from the 2nd wing,22nd Squadron and there was my Dad among the group.This alone to me makes the book a treasure,but I'm 25% through reading it and it is fascinating reading,an invaluable work,and a great testament to all those brave young people it describes within.

A part of WWII history that is seldom if ever read about in the popular media. Very interesting reading for anyone who wants a more insightful understanding of the air war and those who fought it.

Book covering the history of Polish Air Force during WWII, written by acclaimed author on Polish Aviation History. Recommended for WWII buff and military aviation enthusiast.

The story goes like this : the Polish air force was a joke in 1939.Thats why it was destroyed so quickly by the Luftwaffe. The planes were awful , the pilots worse ,etc. . Why then were so many German planes actually shot down ? More than by the French. Why were Polish pilots so good in the Battle of Britain and thru-out WW II in Allied forces ? This book presents an accurate account of the very real weaknesses and the very real strengths of the Polish air force . Read this book and also get "The Forgotten Few" by Adam Zamoyski. Try to see the video "303 Squadron " . Its available on Youtube.
