Memoirs of an officer who served the Polish London government during World War II, undertook a risky mission to the underground "state" and army in the home country in 1943 and then, back in London, became secretary to Tomasz Arciszewski, the last prime minister. It is for the most part an adventure story, but one that also makes a contribution to the history of the politics and diplomacy of the Polish government in exile.
