Polish air force in WWII

Hi, I am a high school student who is having a lot of trouble on her paper. My topic is how the polish air force affected both the culture and morale in Europe during and after WWII. If anyone has any ideas or websites or anything that could help, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone can give me a simplified version of what the polish air force did in WWII and what their goals were (besides beat the Germans and regain Poland) it would be a huge help. I am more interested in cultural history than military history, and all of the explanations I read left me slightly confused. Thank you for helping me!

You might check out the Poles in the RAF:

Thanks, that helped clear some things up for me and also lead me to an article on a Polish War Memorial in London that I can use in my paper!

Before the war, the PZL.37B £oś was one of the world's most modern bombers. It was able to carry a heavier bombload than similar aircraft, for example the Vickers Wellington, though the size of the bombs was limited. Smaller than most contemporary medium bombers, it was relatively fast and easy to handle. Thanks to a landing gear with double wheels it could operate from rough fields or meadows.

I have a friend whose (Polish) dad was in RAF. He has a log book. I'll ask if he has anything.

Meantime, maybe try these chaps: pism.co.uk/home_en.htm

My friend's dad was 317.
