I got my twelfth kill on January 20, but that was when a new pilot, Allen E Dimmick, was hit and killed by a 190 that I then managed to get. On January 30, I scored number thirteen, and in February I scored two in a single mission. Then we got a new pilot, a Polish fellow who flew with the RAF, Boleslaw Michel “Michael” or “Mike” Gladych. he and Gabreski were old friends: Gabby had flown with the RAF Polish Squadron, since he also spoke Polish. Those two together were worth the price of admission, really. He [Gladych] ad a remarkable history indeed.
I learned so much in just this small passage. I won this book awhile back, but I haven’t had the pleasure of reading it yet. It looks like it will be a very educational read. I will have to bump it up on my TBR. I won’t lie though. This looks like a book I will have to take lots of notes with. I’ll probably do some research on the side as well. I’m also okay with that.
