Pilots – the story
The background to the great love affair between Jan, a young Polish military pilot, and Nina, a Warsaw cabaret actress and singer, is the dramatic historical events of the 1930s and 1940s – especially the Battle of Britain, in which Polish pilots played a vital role.
It isn’t a documentary record of historical events, nor an attempt to recreate the history of some of the Polish air squadrons that participated in the Battle of Britain in 1940. It’s a fictional story inspired by historical events, but its course, the main characters and construction of individual scenes are the product of the imagination and creativity of the writer of the book.
