Had to toss this in:
Countless members of the Polish 2nd Corps, who provided an invaluable contribution to the cause of the Allies, did just that in 1941. All the more amazing was that this journey in many cases commenced in the frozen winter months. Moreover, this was after a brutal period of incarceration at the hands of subhuman Soviets where the Polish “prisoners” (illegally held as war was never formally declared) faced merciless forced labor and starvation rations. An often forgotten bit of WW2 history.
