Product description

Review

The most compelling part of this book deals with the fighting in Warsaw, a battle that lasted for sixty-three days. We see the fighting from Bor-Komorowski's point of view, so share the problems he had communicating with isolated parts of the city, the desperate journeys through sewer tunnels, and the heartbreak as the Soviet guns remained silent for week after week. This is the core of the book, and makes it one of the most valuable memoirs to emerge from the Second World War, an absolute classic and highly recommended. - History of War Website

About the Author

Tadeusz Komorowski was born in 1895 in Chorobrów in eastern Poland. The name 'Bór' was his underground codename. In 1943, he commanded the Home Army and led the doomed Warsaw Uprising in 1944. He died in London in 1966. Norman Davies is a leading British historian who specialises in Eastern Europe.
