Fighting Warsaw: The Story of the Polish Underground State, 1939-1945 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Fighting Warsow is an extraordinary human story. Stefan Korbonski, the leader Polish Underground State, portrays the years of the German occupation during the Second World war, and the beginning of anti-Soviet underground activities thereafter. His story presents the entire organization, strategy, and tactics of the Polish underground, which included armed resistance, civil disobedience, sabotage, and boycotts. This new edition contains an introduction by his wife, Zofia, as well as 16 pages of previously unpublished personal photographs.

Book News Annotation:

Korbonski (1901-89) tells how he helped found the Polish Underground State during World War II, and along with his wife Zofia transmitted information on events in Poland to the government in exile in London. He also recounts his brief above-ground, post-war political career before fleeing Soviet suppression in 1947. The memoir has no index or bibliography. The Polish original, apparently never published, was translated by F. B. Czarnomski, and published by Macmillan in 1956 and in paper by Minerva in 1968.
