Orzel's Patrol

The Story of the Polish Submarine

By Sopocko, Eryk
1941, Methuen & Co, London
Hardcover, 146 pages, 8 b&w photos

Descripton: Sub-Lt Sopocko’s report from the ORP Orzel on her historic patrol to Norway and sinking of Rio de Janeiro with reminiscences of epic Baltic campaign and escape from interment in Tallin. Unfortunately, this is a war time propaganda tinted version of the events, much glossed-over, but even at that an interesting document of the era. Written in English, Orzel’s Patrol was a success, with three British editions during the war.

Reportaz piora ppor. mar. Eryka Sopocki z patrolu pod brzegi norweskie i zatopienia Rio de Janeiro z epizodami z kampanii wrzesniowej. Niestety, zawiera mocno retuszowany obraz wydarzen prowadzacych do internowania w Tallinie. Pisane po angielsku, trzy razy wydane w czasie wojny w Anglii.
