Synopsis

Part of the documentary series looking at the history of the resistance movements in Occupied Europe during the Second World War. This volume traces the history of the resistance in Poland, the country that proportionally suffered most from the War. Split between the Germans in the west and the Soviets in the east, the Polish resistance soon fashioned itself into one of the most professional underground forces in Europe. Trained by the British SOE, the Poles wreaked havoc on the occupying German army, before launching their tragic uprising in Warsaw in 1944. Featuring interviews with surviving veterans, as well as rare archive footage and new location footage.
