    Default Book: Poslední let Wellingtonu T2624 (Sgt O. Januj, WOP/AG)

    Dear all,

    I have the pleasure to inform that my next book would be published in October 2018.
    I would like to sent my BIG 'thank you' again to members of this forum who contributed to my research for this book during past years.

    Publisher's Annotation:

    Otakar Jany belongs to a very small group of pre-WW2 Czechoslovak policemen, who chose to leave Czechoslovakia and fight for its freedom, rather than remain and serve its new German masters. His service as a telephonist in the pre-WW2 Czechoslovak army led him to volunteer for the Royal Air Force in the Summer 1940. His height restricted him to fly only bomber aircraft. After initial training as a wireless operator/air gunner he started operational training with Operational Training Flight of No. 311 (Czechoslovak) Bomber Squadron in the Summer 1941. He met his fate on one training flight just a few days before he was due to commence taking part in bombing raids over enemy territory. The cause of Wellington T2624 disappearance over the Irish Sea remains unknown until today. The book, in addition to the unique personal diary, from 1940-1941, of Otakar Janůj, brings new information and a detailed analysis of possible causes of the aircraft’s disappearance.

    218 pages in Czech, around 120 B&W photos and historical documents, mostly published for the first time, 2 maps, whole book on glossy paper.

    Unfortunately most of the members would not be able to read this books as it would be printed in Czech only.

    More information would be available on my website: http://cz-raf.webnode.cz/my-books/januj/
