DescriptionThis book tells the stirring and ennobling story of the achievements of our European Allies flying and fighting side by side with the Royal Air Force. One by one their countries have been seized, their liberties destroyed, their governments driven into exile or suborned; but neither the blandishments nor the oppression of the Nazis could break the spirit of the people.
