Dear all,

I have the pleasure to inform that my next book would be published in September 2017.
Unfortunately for most of the members it would be in Czech only.

Publisher's Annotation:

When Adolf Zelený (1914-2010) has decided for career of an army officer in 1934 he cannot foresee that he would spend thirty-seven adventurous years in armies of three European countries.

During post-war service in the Royal Air Force he passed retraining from navigator to air traffic controller and he served in exotic destinations like Singapore, Kenya and Libya. As Commanding Officer of the Desert Survival School he led many expeditions into the Libyan desert and he visited the legandary bomber Lady Be Good twice. His service has been appraised by the MBE in 1968.

512 pages in Czech, around 300 photos and documents, mostly published for the first time and part of them in colour, 3 maps, whole book on glossy paper.

More information would be avaiable on my website when the book will be available: http://cz-raf.webnode.cz/my-books/rikali-mu-zeke/

Finally I would like to sent my BIG 'thank you' to the many members of this forum who contributed to the research during past few years.
