Product description

Review

‘Unusually well-placed to research and rehearse the story of that terrible event … [Richie] offers a comprehensive narrative of the Polish experience’ Max Hastings, Sunday Times

‘Richie's detailed and sympathetic history … draws heavily on private archives and recounts many unpublished stories. Such survivors' testimony make it the definitive study of the uprising’ Economist

‘Chronicled with astonishing precision by historian and Warsaw resident … this grim and chilling book delivers exhaustive and unforgettable details of this gruesome chapter of World War II’ Publishers Weekly

‘A detailed, if harrowing, narrative history of the rising. Richie has mastered an immense range of material in both German and Polish … There are powerful first person accounts … impressively accomplished in terms of research and narrative … Readers … will gain an understanding of an extraordinary event’ BBC History Magazine

‘Fast-paced narrative history’ Observer

‘Most impressive. She explodes many myths, and is more balanced and judicious than some previous writers … Richie brings it magnificently alive’ Rodric Braithwaite, author of ‘Afgansty’

‘Beautifully written and judicious, this is by far the best account of the Warsaw Uprising to date' Christopher Szpilman

‘Must be the most detailed and harrowing account of the uprising staged by the Polish Home Army … ever published, and is likely to be of lasting value to scholars and general readers alike … this extraordinarily detailed account of a two-month bloodbath creates a vast monument to an often neglected event’ TLS

‘A sympathetic portrait of the struggle waged by Polish insurgents and the civilians caught up in it … As a detailed narrative of the brutal crushing of the uprising as seen through civilian eyes … ‘Warsaw 1944’ is an important contribution to a tragic literature’ Wall Street Journal
