Greeks In Foreign Cockpits
The combat history of the Royal Hellenic Air Force during WWII is not so well known as that of the other branches of the Greek Army and Navy. The stories of the many Greek parentage background pilots that served with the Allied Air Forces, RAF, and USAAF remains completely undocumented with only a few exceptions. This book documents for the first time the service record of ten fighter pilots who lived up to the great Greek martial tradition and the authors aim is that this first volume is only the beginning of what will become a complete roll of honor of all these heroes that remain unsung from the modern history of Greece. The text is in Greek throughout but the many historical photographs are provided with English captions. A beautiful book and a fine and respectful tribute from the authors to their fellow countrymen.
