he Polish Air Force captured 17 of these Fokkers, but only seven (six E.V and one D.VIII) were in air worthy condition. All were used against Bolshevik forces in the Polish-Soviet War of 1919-1920. Lieutenant Stefan Stec earned the first kill for the Polish Air Force, by shooting down a Ukrainian Nieuport fighter on 29 April 1919. In 1921, the remaining Fokkers were withdrawn from front-line units and transferred to the Szkola Obslugi Lotniczej (Air Personnel School) at Poznan-Lawica airfield. The book includes over 120 photographs and 28 colour plates to profusely illustrate these aircraft. Their technical details, military markings and maintenance stencils are shown in the detail.
