A Question of Honor

While a book, rather than the traditional web site resource, we understand it to be historically accurate and maybe of some value.  The link takes you to Amazon.com where you can purchase after reading more.  Briefly ...

After the Nazis invaded their country in 1939, a group of Polish fighter pilots made their way to England to fight the Germans. They recorded one of the best records against the Luftwaffe and made a major contribution to winning World War II. Authors Lynne Olson and Stanley Cloud tell this overlooked story in their book – "A Question of Honor." (Knopf).
