Warsaw Uprising in detail.,
This review is from: Warsaw 1944: The Fateful Uprising (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent story of the Warsaw Uprising of August 1944. The author is a well respected historian and fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford. A lot of this book has come first hand from the author's father-in-law who participated in the uprising and who contributed his own archives to Alexandra Richie to enable he to complete this in depth study. Richie has added her own research into archives in Poland, Russia and Germany. The book is a weighty volume, with over 650 pages of text, followed by an additional 80 pages of bibliography, notes and index.
The book is not a difficult read as some similar histories tend to be.
