W roku 2022 przypada 80. rocznica lądowania aliantów w Dieppe we Francji 19 sierpnia 1942 roku. Była to jedna z najbardziej kontrowersyjnych bitew II wojny światowej, która obejmowała również szeroko zakrojone operacje powietrzne w celu zapewnienia bezpośredniego wsparcia dla desantu oraz obrony żołnierzy i floty przed Luftwaffe. Ta książka jest hołdem dla 1. Polskiego Skrzydła, skrzydła Fighter Command, które odniosło największe sukesy podczas operacji. Skrzydło zapewniło 10% eskadr Spitfire zaangażowanych w bitwę, poniosło 3,5% strat i zostało mu przyznane, przez Fighter Command,  17% wszystkich zniszczonych samolotów wroga. Dywizjony 303 i 317 były tego dnia najlepiej „zwycięskimi” jednostkami. Warto zauważyć, że osiągnęli to, wciąż latając wariantem Spitfire V, podczas gdy niektóre eskadry Fighter Command miały już znacznie ulepszony Mk IX. Ponad 300 starannie wyselekcjonowanych i obszernie podpisanych zdjęć przedstawia Spitfire'y z pięciu polskich eskadr, a także ludzi, którzy utrzymywali je i latali nimi w celu wsparcia lądowania w Dieppe.

Year 2022 marks the 80th anniversary of the Allied landing at Dieppe, France, on 19 August 1942. That was one of the most controversial battles of the Second World War, which also involved extensive air operations to provide direct support for the amphibious assault and to defend the troops and the fleet against the Luftwaffe.
This book is a tribute to the 1st Polish Wing, Fighter Command’s most successful wing during the operation. The wing provided 10% of the Spitfire squadrons engaged in the battle, suffered 3.5% of losses and was credited by Fighter Command with 17% of all enemy aircraft destroyed. Nos. 303 and 317 Polish Squadrons were the top-scoring units that day. Notably, they achieved this while still flying the Spitfire V variant, while some Fighter Command squadrons already had the much improved Mk IX.
Several hundred of carefully selected and extensively captioned images depict Spitfires of the five Polish squadrons, as well as the men who maintained and flew them in support of the Dieppe landings.
