GREEKS IN FOREIGN COCKPITS: The Life and the Career of Hellenic Parentage Fighter Pilots in Service with the USAAF,  the RAF, and the RCAF, 1940-45 - Volume 2.

Three years after the publication of the first volume of the GREEKS IN FOREIGN COCKPITS - Volume 1 , the second volume is now out!

Inside its 520 pages, the lives and combat careers of seven more Greek parentage pilots, who fought over Europe, Mediterranean and China during the Second World War, are presented. Among them is the top ranking Greek ace with sixteen victories, John Agorastos Plagis. His story, like the others, is supported by photos and testimonies not seen before in Greek and international aviation history publications. Along with the great ace from Lemnos, there are chapters featuring Richard Demetriadi (Battle of France and Britain), Harry Zavakos, James Vurgaropulos (both in combat over China), and Theodore Lambros, William Manos and George Kouris (all in action over Normandy and NW Europe).

All chapters also include unpublished photos from the pilots' personal albums. Oil paintings, pencil sketches, digital paintings and colour profiles of the aircraft flown by the Greek parentage pilots and some of their opponents supplement the historical research. Once again, the extensive research by the writers has not only yielded fruit, it's exceeded their expectations. Maintaining the same format as Volume A, and having a quality upgraded cover, the much larger Volume B (190 more pages) is impressive. The captions remain bilingual and comprehensive to allow English-speaking readers to enjoy the photos and artistic depictions, as well as understanding the content of the book to a great extent.
