Alexandra Richie ì 7 Free read Free download ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ì Alexandra Richie characters Warsaw 1944 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. This book is not about the Warsaw ghetto uprising of 1943 but the 1944 uprising led by Polish fighters against the SS The author openly states that the desperate courage of the Jews fighting in the ghetto with improvised weaponry was a matchless demonstration of heroism and the second uprising is not to be considered its eual Having said that the courage of the Polish fighters is tremendous and the suffering of the Warsaw civilians is staggering to read about Hitler had an especially outsized contempt for the Polish people and their capital Warsaw was the only European city which Hitler wanted razed to the ground with not a brick remaining To achieve this he turned Himmler and his SS loose on the city As if the original idea wasn t lunatic enough he did so during the waning days of the Third Reich when the manpower and material used to accomplish it were desperately needed by German troops fighting elsewhere The uprising that opposed them lasted for 60 odd days but was ill timed and ill planned The leaders called for the city s citizens to stand with them even though they knew the western Allies were not going to come to their aid the Germans were not finished and the treacherous Soviets could not be counted on to provide help Citizens were told none of this They fought on regardlessMuch of the book calls for a very strong stomach as it details the fighting death and atrocities as the SS and German army moved from point to point in the sprawling city destroying everything in their wake The destruction of starving sick wounded people often gathered together in public to be executed on the spot occurs again and again Ultimately some 10455 buildings were destroyed including 923 historic buildings 25 churches and synagogues 14 libraries including the oldest in Poland dating to 1747 plus 145 schools two universities and scores of monuments palaces and homes But Himmler and Hitler had only months to live and Warsaw has risen from its ashes to be a great city again The book is worth reading to know of Warsaw s suffering but the ultimate fate of all involved is important to keep in mind as you learn this tragic history

Alexandra Richie ì 7 Free read Free download ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ì Alexandra Richie characters Warsaw 1944 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
