As my Polish father, Jozef Piasecki, is one of the pilots featured, this book is of special interest to me. I found the tragic stories of these wartime crashes, to be full of facts that must have entailed a great deal of research. At the same time, the book has been written with sympathy. There is no exageration or sensationalism. Simply a well thought out reference work, tempered with stories from locals and aircrew.
