Eyewitnesses recall the horror and despair of Warsaw's fall to the Nazis in WWII.
- Go inside the pivotal battle that turned the tide of WWII.
- See how the outmatched Polish army resisted the inevitable Nazi advance.
- Told by the soldiers and citizens who lived through the city's collapse.
This is a story told by eyewitnesses, the insurgent soldiers and citizens who survived one of the most desperate and tragic battles in modern warfare. Starting on August 1, 1944, an ill-equipped insurgent army of Polish patriots faced the mighty German war machine in a bloody, 63-day battle which ultimately led to the total destruction of Warsaw.
The fall of Warsaw took with it the lives of over a quarter million Poles. It opened up the vast expanse of Eastern Europe to Nazi dominion. And it condemned all of Eastern Europe to Soviet domination for the next 45 years. Yet, even as the fighting raged in the heart of their beloved city, the Poles were callously betrayed--not by their enemies, but by their allies!
