Polish Resistance in World War II

Post by Somosierra » 11 Feb 2003 23:49

Did you know that the largest underground resistance army during World War 2 was the Polish Home Army?

300,000 strong at its peak it is credited with supplying the Allies with constant intelligence information about the eastern front, providing information about the V-1 rocket in Peenemunde, the sending over to Britain of the V-2 rocket, the sabotage and destruction of German supply trains and communication centres.

It carried out the war’s largest uprising (the Warsaw Rising) which lasted 63 days. The fate of these men and women was to be hounded, often killed and deported by the Soviet “liberators”.

If you want to know more about the true facts of this extraordinary saga of the 20th century step in.
