"The Warsaw Uprising of 1944" dramatically tells the largely unknown story of the Warsaw resistance movement during World War II. Desperate to free themselves from German military oppression but also hoping to show the advancing Soviets that they could not impose easy rule upon the citizens of Warsaw, the Poles launched an almost hopeless attack against the Germans on August 1, 1944.
Wlodzimierz Borodziej presents an evenhanded account of what is commonly considered the darkest chapter in Polish history during World War II. In only sixty-three days, the Germans razed Warsaw to the ground and 200,000 people, mostly civilians, lost their lives. The result--a heroic and historically pivotal turning point--meant that the Poles would lose both their capital and an entire generation. This concise account of the trauma--little known to English-speaking readers--will appeal to anyone interested in the history of World War II in general and is a must-read for students of Polish history in particular.
