One of the most dramatic and shameful episodes in World War II was the doomed Warsaw uprising of 1944 -- an uprising that failed because the Allies betrayed it.  Now that story comes to its full terrible life in this gripping account by the bestselling historian Norman Davies. — In August 1944, encouraged by the advance of the Red Army, the Polish Resistance poured forty thousand fighters into the streets of Warsaw to reclaim the city from the hated Germans. But Stalin condemned the uprising as a criminal venture. For sixty-three days the Wehrmacht and the SS methodically set about crushing the rebellion and destroying the city. Following the battle’s desperate progress through the cellars and sewers of Warsaw, Rising ’44 retrieves its subject from the shadows of history, revealing its pivotal importance to the outcome of World War II and the Cold War that followed.
