Format: Paperback
Sums handily up the Polish experience and effort during WWII on both the European fronts (east and west) and the resistance struggle against the Nazis within occupied Poland. Elaborate and beautiful illustrations by Richard Hook.

HI - have just bought this book and although I enjoyed the narrative , am very disappointed in the lack of detail regarding the formations of regiments , battalions and companies etc - we know all about the armies of the Grand Duchy of Warsaw - why not the more modern Polish army ?

There is more info on wikipedia than in this volume - which is greatly disappointing .

Let me start that this ''little'' book not only as I have written is rather short and does not go in-depth with all the aspects of the Polish contribution to Victory in WWII. But what I have found extremely offencive is that this title potrays members of NSZ as criminals.

That being said UNLESS you are really desperate for basic information on Poles in WWII, go ahead and but it but do not expect to much otherwise its a waste of money.

I have given it three stars instead of two just because I found the pictures very amusing...

5.0 out of 5 stars A good book about Poland during World War Two 30 Mar. 2015
By Robert B. Lloyd LCSW - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Poland has, to put it lightly, one of the most brutal histories of any nation during World War Two. There are many good books about this subject, one of my favorite being "No Greater Ally" by Kenneth K. Koskodan. How this book contributes is that it puts illustrations to the subject matter. Particularly helpful is how it divides both the illustrations and writing into the various aspects of Poland's involvement, covering the basic uniforms and battles fought by Poles on the Western front (who fought with the British) the Poles who fought with the Soviets on the Eastern front, and finally the home guard who were the resistance group. This book is somewhat dated (I saw that it was published in 1982) however I still felt the book gave a good overview, and as always the illustrations were excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but some small concerns 1 Mar. 2014
By Thomas Adkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a good book - all Osprey books are dependably solid.
But there are things that aren't good, and this concerns the book, not the seller).
* First published in 1982 (e.g., before fall of Berlin Wall, Warsaw Pact and USSR), and so the info is dated and should be updated (easy to do in a couple places to just not talk from cold war language).
* Not enough info - needs more pictures, or info on unit organization, equipment

I found the book interesting but I wished it covered periods further back in history. I know the near the end of 2nd Wwar many of the uniforms were borrowed from british army .
