Descripton: More de-mythologized history of the World War II Polish Navy (the title comes from the classical history of the Polish Navy in WWII by Pertek, the Wielkie dni ma³ej floty, or Great Days of the Little Navy), exploring some enduring fairy tales. Includes submarine stories: an order to unload spares from the sub minelayers three days before the war started, real success of the Dzik at Spartivento, Polish saboteur in Greece blowing up U-133 and U-372, witness NCO states ramming U-102 was a hoax.
