The story of the Polish fliers who found themselves fighting for the
freedom of their own country in foreign skies. Seen through the eyes of
Jan Zumbach, fighter ace and adventurer, it tells how the Poles, driven
across Europe by the German war machine, finally made their last stand.
Flying Hurricanes for the RAF over Britain, they became a key component
in the legend of ‘The Few’. Up against the might of the Luftwaffe they
hoped that, by saving Great Britain from Nazi invasion, they were keeping
the dream of a free Poland alive. In the lethal melee above England in
that summer of 1940, they fought with a tenacity and skill that earned
them the admiration of the whole British nation. The dogfights against
superior planes cost some of the men their lives.

The constant strain of gladiatorial combat took away the sanity of others.
But, as Zumbach discovers as the war stutters to a close, becoming the
best in the RAF is a hollow victory for the Poles. Hurricane shows how,
even in a man’s finest hour, cynical political manoeuvrings can destroy
his hopes, strip away his dignity and lead him to a very dark place indeed.
