In August 1944, with the Soviets approaching and the Germans in retreat, the Polish resistance saw their chance to seize back their capital. For over a month they held much of the city but the Russians halted their advance and allowed the Germans to retake the city and exact their revenge. This book recounts the events of the revolt and assesses the factors that left the Poles unsupported and led to the annihilation of Warsaw.
