How a Polish World War II fighter pilot became a national hero in Pakistan

How a Polish World War II fighter pilot became a national hero in Pakistan

This is a chapter I missed in the history books:

"Wadysaw Józef Marian Turowicz was one of the refugee pilots from Poland who joined the Royal Air Force and fought for Britain during World War Two. No longer needed by the Allies after the war and unwelcome in their newly communist homeland, some of the pilots settled in Pakistan and helped establish one of the most admired air forces in the world at the time."
