ACCIDENT: The Death of General Sikorski

This is the brand new 2018 Focal Pont Classic editon.




In 1943 the Polish prime minister in exile General Wladyslaw Sikorski was killed with his entire staff and only daughter, in the crash of a British plane at Gibraltar, a few seconds after take-off. He was returning from a tour of inspection. This is the last known photo, taken on the morning of the crash. 

The Czech pilot Eduard Prchal was the only survivor.

The Germans immediately claimed it was an assassination. The RAF flew a Board of Inquiry to Gibraltar to investigate, but this cleared the pilot of blame.

The death of the Polish prime minister came at a very convenient moment for Winston Churchill, whose relations with the Polish government in exile were worsening; and for the Soviet Union.

In this 1967 book David Irving investigates the mystery; he published the Board’s secret report, and spoke with the pilot twice, and with many others involved.
