Synopsis

Decorated Polish fighter pilot Witold `Lanny' Lanowski tells his remarkable Second World War story beginning with his dramatic escape from Nazi aggression in Poland, fighting with the reformed Polish Air Force in France, and eventually arriving in England to combat the Luftwaffe.



On completion of his tour he joins the United States Army Air Forces and the 56th Fighter Group,`Zemke's Wolfpack', flying the P47 Thunderbolt, the `Jug', escorting the heavy bombers over hostile territory and hunting down enemy pilots. In addition to flying as wingman to two of the top scoring aces he also commands the Polish Flight, formed of fellow countrymen who utilize their hard won experience to teach new pilots combat skills.



Lanny Lanowski's exploits have become legendary, as has his rebellious nature. His memoir, supported by previously unpublished photographs, recounts an extraordinary personal journey within the life or death context of the European air war- a gripping and revealing insight in to what it was like to be `Out in Front'.
