Parachuting into Poland, 1944 : Memoir of a Secret Mission with Jozef Retinger, Paperback / softback Book

Parachuting into Poland, 1944 : Memoir of a Secret Mission with Jozef Retinger Paperback / softback

Description

This is a first-hand account, never before in English, of a secret World War II mission in 1944 called Operation Salamander, in which Tadeusz Chciuk (writing as Marek Celt) parachuted into German-occupied Poland with the enigmatic political advisor Dr. Jozef Retinger. The goal of the mission was to persuade the Polish underground forces and political leadership to accept the fact that it was imperative to start negotiating with the Soviets right away, as they were now to be considered Poland's allies and had the full support of the British and Americans.

The story culminates in Operation Wildhorn III, in which Chciuk and Retinger were picked up in Poland by a British plane that landed just a short distance from a significant detachment of German forces, and flew them to safety.
