From the Publisher:

On the 70th anniversary of the beginning of WWII (Sept. 1, 1939), we are very proud and excited to present our new edition of The Mermaid and the Messerschmitt.

We spent more than a year researching and licensing the photos and other illustrations from many sources in the U.S., U.K. and Poland to include in our edition -- we wanted our visuals to really illuminate and enrich the story. We will also offer to purchasers of our edition a copy of the rare 1940 Academy Award-nominated 10-minute newsreel Siege, consisting of original footage of the Siege of Warsaw shot by American photojournalist Julien Bryan, the last neutral journalist remaining in Warsaw during September 1939.

We're sure that if you're interested in knowing more about WWII, the civilian experience of modern war, and/or seeing war through different eyes, you'll love this book!

Thanks for your interest!
Aquila Polonica Publishing

From the Author:

"To the average person, I think, war horrors come pretty much like the pangs of childbirth. At first, in spite of apprehensions, life still goes on, almost normal, with all of its little trivialities. Then comes the pang: wild, screaming, inhuman."
- Rulka Langer, from the Author's Preface
