This book in the popular Polish Wings series tells the story of French flying boats in the service of the Polish Navy Air Force from the end of the First World War to the outbreak of the Second World War. During this period, the Polish naval air force used a number of French flying boats, mainly Schreck FBA 17 (a 1920s training flying boat), Liore et Olivier LeO H-13 and its variant H-135 (a 1920s biplane twin-engined flying boat reconnaissance-bomber) and Latham 43 (a flying boat bomber). All these aircraft had been withdrawn from combat units by 1939.
