Nced it first hand and as the few escapees from both Wola and Old Town made it to the next section of Warsaw their stories were met with incredulityno one could believe that the Germans who they suffered under for five years could descend into such abject bestiality How hard it must be to conceive the inconceivablemy uncles in Kiss of Surrender (Deadly Angels, law turned back at the Pyrenees in their flight from the Nazis as they couldn t face what they believed were the barbarians of Spain and Portugal as the Nazis shared their high culture and could not possibly be what they would prove themselves to beThis is a must read for anyone who wants to understand the full scope of the effect of this war and its impact on the countries that were occupied and how war driven by sheer ideology is devastating than wars of mere conuest of territory Alexandra Richie is a Warsawian via Oxford University She has taken on a tragic tale of a city s unnecessary destruction and its nation s unwilling demise Herove of Warsaw and of Poland shines through this disturbing history of the 1944 Uprising against the German occupation of Warsaw Poland has The Weirdstone of Brisingamen long been a hot potato between Germany and Russia Until its post WWI independence Poland had been sliced and diced by Russia Austria Hungary and other European countries and immediately on its freormation the Bolsheviks had invaded The 1939 Russo German Non Aggression Pact opened the way to Germany s September 1 1939 invasion from the west and to Russia s invasion from the east splitting the country along the Molotov Ribbentrop Line Germany s invasion of Russia in 1941 claimed all of Poland for Germany Poland was andong had been the continent s wrestling mat Hitler wanted Poland as a Vastarien, Vol. 1, Issue 1 (English Edition) land grab to implementebesraum the displacement of Polish farmers by Germans and the creation of blissful Teutonic hamlets He also anticipated a third world war with Germany and the West against Russia for which Poland would be useful territory Stalin s interest in Poland was geopolitical it would provide a Soviet buffer state a barrier for Germany it would return Poland to one of its many its rightful owners it would redress Lenin s bitter failure to occupy Poland in 1920 and it would extend Bolshevism closer to Europe perhaps Stalin s ultimate goalAfter Germany captured the Polish capital it organized the Jewish population in the Ghetto Realizing that they could die fighting or just die a poorly organized and under resourced resistance initiated the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising It was as most expected a catastrophic failure for the Ghetto ending with its viciously brutal destruction The Polish Home Army then rebuilt the Warsaw resistance and awaited a propitious time to throw the Germans out of Warsaw In May of 1944 Stalin began Operation Bagration a major offensive through Byelorussia headed toward Berlin Germany was completely surprised expecting the attack in the south through Ukraine the Russians had moved 17 million men with euipment weapons and materiel from the Ukraine with remarkable secrecy The Red Army rapidly reached the Vistula River near Warsaw where a German counter offensive temporarily stopped it Hearing sounds of war and believing that Russia was coming to Rain (Paper Gods, liberate Warsaw the Polish Home Army initiated the Warsaw Uprising on August 1 1944 the revolt thatasted 63 days Ironically the Uprising began as Germans were fleeing the city in droves Had it not started Warsaw might have survived But the Uprising ed Hitler on Himmler s advice to send new forces to Warsaw brutally razing it and decimating its population after Hitler ordered that Warsaw was to be obliteratedIn her prologue Richie states that the book s primary goal is to uncover the motives "of the increasingly unstable Hitler and the increasingly powerful Himmler Why did "the increasingly unstable Hitler and the increasingly powerful Himmler Why did mean so much to them Why when German forces and production capacity were so stretched did they spend treasure troops and time destroying a city with no strategic value I had Expected Emphasis On This Hitler S Wish To Eliminate All emphasis on this Hitler s wish to eliminate all Polish and his plan for Warsaw as a German signature city were cited but I found no insight into what ed to this madness Nor could I find much insight into Himmler s motives other than to rubber stamp Hitler and increase his own power This book does not provide a psychology of madnessWhat it does do as do so many other books is detail the utter devastation that WWII brought to eastern Europe in general and to Poland in particular It does this in great detail by focusing on one of the horrendous German actions This is very powerful material but while there might be novelty for historians in the details its broad brush strokes are not new to any reader of the war in Europe The Nazi The Replacement Wife leadership WAS brutal and except for the Jewish solution indiscriminate murderers Poland WAS part of the bloodlands between Germany and Russia with aong history of subjection to foreign powers Stalin WAS a ruthless political animal intent on postwar control of Poland Roosevelt WAS a fool where it concerned Stalin The micro events of the Warsaw episode are stirring but the macro events surrounding it are well traveled territoryStill it is remarkable that after almost 75 years the second Great War in Europe generates such well researched and finely written documents Richie s story of the city and people she Damned (Witch Hunt loves is a very powerful and very painful read I say 4 stars with an extra star for style An excellent description of Warsaw Uprising Apart from a thorough background on its occurrence it provides a chronology of events which helped me to understand how the focus of the German attacks moved from one suburb to the next The cynicism of Russian troops stationing just few kilometres away and their refusal to allow the Allied planes toand on the eastern site of Vistula makes them co responsible for the death of many innocent people The hostility of Russi. Army was The Bluebird Bet (Welcome to Tall Pines 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 complexegacy of some of World War II’s most unsung heroes. The numbers beggar belief Of a prewar population of 13 million 150000 civilians and 18000 underground soldier killed and this is excluding 400000 Jews who were sent to their deaths from 1939 43 The remainder were forced from their homes into concentration camps and forced Hot-Blooded Italians labour camps as Warsaw was demolished brick by brick on Hitler s orderseaving a few thousand hiding amongst the ruins awaiting the SovietsAlexandra Ritchie weaves together the gripping and horrific story of one of the greatest tragedies of World War 2 and the opening shots of the Cold War that resulted in the almost complete destruction of one of Europe s great cities The Warsaw Uprising was also the site of Mlynowski Teen Thriller largest single battlefield massacre of World War 2 and the details of this massacre and the treatment of the civilian population are most harrowingHowever please do persevere with this book as it is an excellent record of the Uprising coming up to its 70th anniversary as well as the duplicity of Stalin and the politics of necessity This book is not about the Warsaw ghetto uprising of 1943 but the 1944 uprisinged 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 Reggie loose on the city As if the original idea wasn tunatic 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 Switchback lasted for 60 odd days but was ill timed and ill planned Theeaders 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 Marrying Marcus (Virgin Brides, 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 toive 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 earn this tragic history A compelling graphic and terrifying account of Warsaw at the peak of her destruction by the Nazis in 1944 An insane graphic and terrifying account of Warsaw at the peak of her destruction by the Nazis in 1944 An insane and his eually mad minions et If Im Found (If I Run loose on the innocent citizens of Warsaw where murder rapeooting and the total annihilation of the city was the rule of the day The insurgent underground Polish Army tries to fight this enemy but with CaddyGirls little help from the Allies and none from the nearby Soviets her days are tragically numbered This is a well researched text using the words of many eyewitnesses to tell the story from both sides of the fight Probably best for hard core history buffs of this segment of the war The Poles had to come back to a Warsaw that wasiterally destroyed to dust and then suffer a further reoccupation of Stalin s oppression However the author does allow a Assignment littleight in by recognizing that today s Warsaw is recovering uite nicely and the Polish spirit Philosophy of Religion lives on The Warsaw Uprising was a perfect storm The Home Army misjudged events and chose exactly the wrong time to rise up Soviet advanceseft 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 No Respect love of Warsaw hased to some bias surely unnecessary when describing atrocities as horrifying as these for example in her descriptions as these For example in her descriptions a harmonious multicultural WARSAW SHE SEEMS TO HAVE OVERLOOKED OR FORGOTTEN THE she seems to have overlooked or forgotten the of many Poles to the earlier Jewish Warsaw Ghetto uprising which at best could be described as indifferenceStill a very good book though 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 The Spirituality Revolution 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. The full untold story of how one of history’s bravest revolts ended in one of its greatest crimesIn 1943 the Nazisiuidated Warsaw’s Jewish ghetto A year Comptia Cysa+ Cybersecurity Analyst Certification Bundle (Exam Cs0-001) 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. Of September over 150000 civilians and 18000 Polish combatants hadost their Economies and Cultures lives and Warsaw was reduced to 20 million cubic tons of ruble Sometimesarge 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 Designing with Web Standards 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 ofarger war explores the rationale of the Polish Sadies Surrender (Oyster Harbor, leadership inaunching 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 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 I really need to start reading cheerful books After reading so much other WWII and Holocaust fare I m not uite sure how I made it through this further tome of hideous crimes of the Third Reich Perhaps it was due to the author s clear precise prose Some war histories can be dense works tending to academic audiences but this was refreshingly vibrant with the first person accounts of Hitler s utter destruction of a European capital as the war was drawing towards its end and the Home Army and many citizens of Warsaw took up arms against their occupiers with tragic bad timing Richie s book is well researched and thought out although the sheer number of names along with the sad horrifying descriptions of the events against non combatants made it challenging at times I have never been very knowledgeable on the Soviet campaign to push the Axis forces back out of Russia and Poland but I feel this has made at east a slight dent in my ignorance The names of Dirlewanger Van dem Bach and Rheinefarth will haunt my mind for awhileAnother sad thing to mention here is the tragic way the Allies abandoned Poland to her fate Perhaps Churchill tried to support the country for which they actually entered into the war from time to time but Roosevelt made several errors in war from time to time "But Roosevelt Made Several " Roosevelt made several in of Soviet intentions eaving Poland in the First Anthology lurch Richie makes it hard to excuse the privilege of our modern hindsight Iook forward to reading her book on the history of Berlin Faust s Metropolis Warsaw 1944 has come to us from the archives inherited by the author diaries that have brought to Releasing The Power Within Through Spiritual Dynamics life the full tragedy of both the Warsaw Uprising in 1944 but the very fate of the city The amount of research to bring this text to fruition is overwhelming and possible with the availability of both Russian and German archives many of which did not become available until the dissolution of the Soviet UnionIt is mostly a forgotten story a small footnote which all sides wanted forgotten and buried along with the hundreds of thousands of corpses that met their demise in a slaughter of civilians un precidented in this war All of the allies Britain the United States and the Soviets can be held responsible for the abandonment of Poland but the total destruction of Warsaw and the brutal slaughter of civilians men women and children can only beaid at the feet of Hiltler s anti Jewish ant Slavic ideology based on a hatred so strong that he diverted both manpower and material needed desperately for the defense of Germany to relentlessly kill every Warsawrian possible and to turn the city into a wastelandSadly the few survivors got no final justice few of the actual perpetrators were held accountable in any meaningful way Few of those who survived the Nazi slaughter escaped THE PUNISHMENT OF INCARCERATION AND KILLINGS MADE BY STALIN punishment of incarceration and killings made by Stalin NKVD after the supposed Passage Through Crisis liberation of WarsawIt was not a fast read even though it was written in a way that made the battles and actions present The sheer weight of the horror of what occurred and the actions of the SS Dirlewanger Brigade and the Kiminsky brigade made me set the book down many a night just to be able to absorb the sheer barbarity of the slaughter and destructionI was amazed at the psychology of those who interfaced with the survivors of each section of the city as it fell to the destruction planned for all The people of Old Town refused to believe what the survivors of Wola told them until they experie. Taking advantage of German disarray and seeking to forestall the absorption of their country into the Soviet empire they chose toiberate 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 arge 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.
