Synopsis

Not all war heroes have had their stories told. Many lived and died in anonymity. Uncommon Warrior, the sequel to Michael’s Messengers, continues to recount the many extraordinary World War II accomplishments of ordinary airmen during the Battle of Britain and the liberation of Europe.

 

Jack Meadows, a Polish born, naturalized American, embodies the countless acts of selfless courage as a fighter pilot. He symbolizes the untold stories of airmen who flew both conventional and unconventional operations.

 

As a 19-year old naturalized American, Jack returned to his native Poland to fly with the Polish Air Force in 1939. He fled to England where he became the RAF’s leading ace and the youngest wing commander. He led the RAF’s Polish Air Force wing in 1943 and the Allied air forces’ elimination of the Luftwaffe threat over Normandy prior to D-Day.

 

Jack’s successes in the skies over England and Europe were not matched by his life on the ground. His attempts to find true love were thwarted when the women in his life abandoned him or met an untimely demise. He fought personal demons by taking risks beyond the norm, even for a combat pilot.

 

The end of the war should have been the beginning of Jack’s new life. He finally found his true love, was engaged to be married, and had an unlimited future as a political figure in his adopted country; Great Britain. But fate stepped in again to thwart Jack’s quest for love and tranquility.
