The Polish Air Force (Polish: Siły Powietrzne Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej – literally: Air Forces of the Polish Republic) is the military Air Force wing of the Polish Armed Forces. Until July 2004 it was officially known as Air and Air Defence Forces. The Polish Air Force can trace its origins to the months following the end of World War I in 1918.
Polish Air Force in The War That Came EarlyEdit
The Polish Air Force, like many other smaller European nations was still unprepared when war broke out in the final days of 1938 with Soviet Union. Vastly outnumbered, the Poles still flew against the Soviets with positive results.As 1939 began, the Pole's began to receive aid from Germany, and they took the offensive, with the help of their German allies, bombing both Minsk, and Zhytomyr. After the bombing, the Luftwaffe practically took over the air war against the Russians, but the Poles still fought back, reminding the Soviets that they were still in the fight.
