Warsaw 1944 Read & Download Á 104 The full untold story of how one of history’s bravest revolts ended in one of its greatest crimesIn 1943 the Nazis liuidated Warsaw’s Jewish ghetto A year later they threatened to complete the city’s destruction by deporting its remaining residents A sophisticated and cosmopolitan community a thousand years old was facing its final days and then opportunity struck As Soviet soldiers turned back the Nazi invasion of Russia and began pressing west the underground Polish Home Army decided to act. The Warsaw Uprising was a perfect storm The Home Army misjudged events and chose exactly the wrong time to rise up Soviet advances left the Germans short of regular troops so the task of putting down the uprising fell to Himmler and the SS including special ie sadistic bandit hunters And Stalin wanting Poland for himself stood by and watched as the Home Army broke itself against the SS The result especially for innocent civilians was horrific The book however is very good It s well researched and very well written full of details and eyewitness accounts a handful of maps and has just enough info about the wider war to put things into context although I preferred the descriptions of the action within Warsaw to events outside of it It s also uite graphic in places and doesn t pull any punches and conseuently can be uite a disturbingemotional readI wonder though if the author s evident love of Warsaw has led to some bias surely unnecessary when describing atrocities as horrifying as these For example in her descriptions of a harmonious multicultural Warsaw she seems to have overlooked or forgotten the attitude of many Poles to the earlier Jewish Warsaw Ghetto uprising which at best could be described as indifferenceStill a very good book though

Warsaw 1944 Read & Download Á 104 Army was left to face the full fury of Hitler Himmler and the SS The crackdown that followed was among the most brutal episodes of history’s most brutal war and the celebrated historian Alexandra Richie depicts this tragedy in riveting detail Using a rich trove of primary sources Richie relates the terrible experiences of individuals who fought in the uprising and perished in it Her clear eyed narrative reveals the fraught choices and complex legacy of some of World War II’s most unsung heroes. This is a story of one of the great but unknown tragedies of WW2 I visited Warsaw around 2005 and was told that this interesting city had been completely rebuilt after the war I could not understand the significance of this explanation at that time but I do now how Hitler in his hatred for the Polish people was determined to completely destroy the city in August 1944 This order was handed over to Himmler and psychopathic and criminal units of his SS and this is well described in detail by the author using a great number of Polish and German sources with particular emphasis on showing the suffering of Warsaw s inhabitants Alexandra Richie is a Canadian historian who both graduated and taught at Oxford then married a Polish national and afterwards moved to Poland As a noted historian she writes with a style that is easy to read but authoritative covering covers all aspects of the story the Uprising the battle the final destruction and the fate of the surviving citizens In doing so she commemorates the complete story of the Uprising which was incorrectly understood at the time and afterwards uickly forgotten by the rest of the world

Warsaw 1944 Read & Download Á 104 Taking advantage of German disarray and seeking to forestall the absorption of their country into the Soviet empire they chose to liberate the city of Warsaw for themselves      Warsaw 1944 tells the story of this brave and errant calculation For than sixty days the Polish fighters took over large parts of the city and held off the SS’s most brutal forces But in the end their efforts were doomed Scorned by Stalin and unable to win significant support from the Western Allies the Polish Home. An unsparing gut wrenching account of the Warsaw Uprising against the Germans not to be confused with the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943 when the Polish Home Army launched a heroic but ultimately disastrous attack on their Nazi occupiers as Stalin s Red Army closed in on the city in the summer of 1944 Poland suffered terribly at the hands of both the Germans and the Russians during the war and Richie describes the tragic events and the horrific atrocities of the Warsaw Uprising in unflinching detail By the time the Poles capitulated at the end of September over 150000 civilians and 18000 Polish combatants had lost their lives and Warsaw was reduced to 20 million cubic tons of ruble Sometimes large numbers such as these can have an almost numbing effect on us they appeal to our brain as opposed to our heart and it can be at least for me hard to grasp the true magnitude of the destruction and the almost inconceivable barbarity of what actually happened beyond that of a comparative if somewhat dispassionate analysis While Richie places the Uprising in the context of larger war explores the rationale of the Polish leadership in launching the uprising and examines Stalin s cynical manipulations and the Western Allies calculated indifference to her credit her primary focus is conveying the true horror of what happened on the ground over the course of those 63 terrible days and its aftermath from primary source accounts The result is an exceptionally grim and often stomach turning read but highly recommended if you are interested in World War II or Polish history If interested in either of those topics I would also highly recommend Katyn Stalin s Massacre and the Triumph of Truth by Allen Paul which explores the Soviet Union s atrocities in Poland and how the Allies dealt with the Poland problem over the course of the war
