Davies, BTW, does not argue that the Red Army stopped on the other side of the Vistula out of pure malignance - on the contrary, he attributes this primarily to the strength of the German opposition. However, to put the responsibility on the AK for the strained relations is I think you will find something Davies would consider absurd, and here I must confess I would agree with him.
COMMANDER ARMIES 2-ÃÎ THE BELARUS FRONT
ABOUT THE POSITION AT NEGOTIATIONS WITH COMMAND OF THE POLISH GUERRILLA DIVISION
On March, 24th, 1944
On your encryption from 3/23/1944 for No 135/k Stavka Supreme Headquarters orders:
1. To transmit command of the Polish guerrilla division, that its joint actions with Red Army desirable under condition of full submission, in every respect, only to command of Red Army, on behalf of command of the Belarus front. The diarchy in military science cannot be. The division can have connection with everybody, Sosnkovsky or whom another, but in the actions it should will obey to orders of Red Army if it really wishes to operate together with Red Army against German aggressors.
2. In case of acceptance of these conditions the Polish guerrilla division should be provided by command of Red Army of all necessary for fight.
The division should be concentrated in one area and is used for performance of fighting tasks on one of sites of front.
3. If commands of the Polish guerrilla division will refuse to accept these conditions, joint actions with Red Army and as her material maintenance are considered inadmissible.
4. On results of negotiations and about the Polish guerrillas in general to inform on a regular basis.
The Stavka of Supreme Headquarters
f. 3, i. 11556, f. 15, s. 70-71. The certified copy.
Those forces AK which refused to submit to it in every respect proved, and, the main thing, reasonable the requirement from Stavka disarmed only.
Absolutely same requirements Anglo-American Command has presented to the French forces of the general de Gaulle.
If the general de Gaulle has refused to execute requirements of Anglo-Americans it is possible to not doubt, that he would be arrested.
The Frenchmen (the general de Gaulle not exception) reasonable people also reckoned with real position. The Frenchmen have obeyed to the requirement of Anglo-American command.
The opposite picture was observed in actions of the London Poles.
Known Polish arrogance, ignoring from the London Poles of a reality and as consequence refusal to subordinate the actions to Command of Red Army, here, that became the reason of disarmament of forces AK.
All other is propaganda cliches.
Any command in the world will not allow, that in his operative zone walked about armed the groups, not doing will obey to his requirements.
Here the double morals is clearly visible.
Requirements of Anglo-Americans to the Frenchmen it is normal.
Similar requirements Stavka to the London Poles it is not so normal.
Resistance to disarmament suppressed with force. No politics only business.
