MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: The Engaging Memoir of a Czech Fighter Pilot Flying for Britain in World War Two - Frank Mares This memoir represents the author's odyssey to free his homeland (Czechoslovakia) from German occupation, which eventually led him to Britain (via France, where he had trained to fight with the French Armée de l'Air but alas! the French collapse in June 1940 necessitated the author's quick departure from that country), where he went on to fly Hurricanes and Spitfires with the Royal Air Force.

For anyone who is an aviation enthusiast, as well as the lover of a good, human interest story, this book will make a welcome Christmas present.
