The chase group Ile-de-France is a symbol of Free France, at least with regard to aviation, and write a book about this unit is relevant as we celebrate this year 70 Years of Free France.
This is a fighter unit that fought between 1941 and 1945 under the authority of the British, and this book is over 300 pages tells us his epic. Without waiting for the conclusion, this book is undoubtedly successful, and at first glance we see that the author has highlighted the drivers, key players it is true, publishing many photos of some of these never returned to mission. The photos, excellent quality, are published in large format, which suggests sometimes a photo album family that runs it as if the author wanted to present this "family".
This iconography is there to illustrate a text that is no less interesting, dotted with numerous witnesses, making the book both lively and captivating. However, without that begins the favorable ruling that I bring to this book, I regret that the introduction is too short, because the creation of the Ile-de-France deserved further explanation, be it on the creation late compared to other foreign nations (Poland, Czechoslovakia, Netherlands, Norway), which in this autumn of 1941 have long since established their operational units, we do shrouds the Belgians only five days, but the belated creation of Belgian unit is due to very limited numbers throughout the war, which will not be the case of the French. The written part is not only made ??history in actual unit, there are also inserts detailing specific events, or developing the biography of some drivers. This book concludes with appendices of very useful and extensive work reflecting a fund undeniable.
In any event, it is a work of the most complete in this unit are hunting, and her presentation is attractive and it is classified as reference books on FAFL.
