This unusual pamphlet, issued by the underground Partisan Office for Information and Propaganda, was printed in 1944, when the first Allied airplanes started flying over the country, giving people hope for the approaching liberation.

The first chapter represents the reaction to the first sighting of the Allied planes , observed by the common people, women, children and the Partisan fighters in the woods. The other chapters of the book include a report on destroyed buildings by the Allied bombers in France and the attack on Germany. The illustration compares the quantity of bombs on Germany and on the Great Britain.

The book is dedicated to the Allied, as well as to the Soviet pilots.

The pamphlet was printed by an unknown partisan underground press. The same title was printed in the same year by five other underground Partisan presses, all in different formats and in different design. We could only trace one example of this book in libraries worldwide (Public Library Srečko Kosovel, Sežana, Slovenia).
