63 Dni Chwaly - 63 Days of Glory,
This review is from: Warsaw 1944: The Fateful Uprising (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
In 2014 it will be 70 years since the Warsaw Uprising.
The Uprising started in August 1944 and went on till October - 63 Days - In Poland it is known as 63 days of glory or praise.
This is an excellent book describing the build up to the uprising from the start of the war.
The events are described from the German & Polish and also the Soviet & Allies perspectives and uses accounts not just from the military personnel but also from ordinary civilians.
This is quite a hefty tome with nearly 650 pages of text plus photographs, notes & bibliography & index.
The book is well research and is very readable - well worth the time taken to read it.
