Item description for MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: The Engaging Memoir of a Czech Fighter Pilot Flying for Britain in World War Two by Frank Mares...

Appalled at the German occupation of his homeland in 1939, Frank Mares determined to assist his country in their battle for freedom in the only way he could - as a fighter pilot. Unable to do so from Czechoslovakia he began his mission, navigating his way through Poland to France, through manned borders, guarded stations and hostile territory, in order to assist the offensive against their common enemy. Armed with fake identities, evading arrest and faced with uncertainties and frustrations at every turn, his journey was one of courage and fortitude. Narrowly avoiding a five-year enlistment in the foreign legion, Frank eventually made it into the French Air Force and finally, following the withdrawal of France from the war, joined 601 Squadron with the British RAF. Patriotic and determined, he was involved in numerous dogfights and had many engagements with the enemy, flying Hurricanes, of which he was particularly fond. In all of the battles that he fought in the skies with German Luftwaffe pilots, he was never shot down. In 1942 he was decorated with the DFM and Czech War Cross. Despite incident and injury Frank persevered, always driven by love for his country and for the planes he flew. He remained in England after the war and, now retired, lives in the West Country near the old RAF Harrowbeer airfield at Yelverton, Devon.

Reviews - What do customers think about MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: The Engaging Memoir of a Czech Fighter Pilot Flying for Britain in World War Two?

A very personal story of resolve and endeavour  Jun 26, 2007
From the first page this becomes a very personal story of a young man who resolves to fight for his country's (Czechoslovakia) freedom from the 'Nazi Boot' - as Frank Mares describes it. It is because it is based on Frank's diaries, kept at the time, that his descriptions and feelings are so vivid. The story is not written from a faded memory or through 'rose-tinted' glasses. His story comes alive and I was pulled through the book. It has many personal sketches and photographs. A very good read that makes you feel better ... as well as very grateful for the sacrifices of others.
