This book is about the Fellowship of the Bellows in Brazil, the contributions of Anglo Brazilians to the RAF during the Second World War, but I can not fail to mention a known historical fact, which was one of the main reasons that led me to start research and write this book, the attack on the German Field Marshal , Erwim von Rommel on July 17, 1944 in Normandy.
The Fellowship of the Bellows in Brazil was a group of people, mostly descendants of Englishmen who lived in Brazil and Latin America from 1940 to 1945, contributing financially to the RAF.
There are articles about this Fellowship of the Bellows in Brazil in specialized magazines and internet sites, however this book is the result of more than ten years of research and brings information, exclusive testimonials, interviews and an approach on the performance of Fellowship of the Bellows in Brazil ".
There are two hundred pages with photos, illustrations and documents, among them some originals, which depict the Fellowship of the Bellows in Brazil, its members and their actions, thirty-two pages colored with technical profiles of the planes given and other planes that participated in actions.
Among the most striking facts is the donation, use and destination of sixteen Spitfires delivered to various RAF squadrons, nine Hawker Typhoons given to the 193rd fighter squadron named the Fellowship of the Bellows Brazil in October 1943, named in recognition of the efforts of Brazilians to contribute to the purchase of aircraft for the Royal Air Force. And a Lockheed Hudson was given to the Força Aérea Brasileira (Brazilian Air Force) in April 1943.
