Minimum Donation €22.00

Impressions of the Polish Campaign in Norway. ‘This publication which we are presenting to British readers serves to commemorate the part played by the Poles in the battle of Narvik. It does not claim to be a historical document. It has not been written by military experts. It is a creation of a journalist and a painter, who have both taken active part in the campaign, based on the freshness of their impressions.’
