Obsah
Many books have been written about the Uprising in Warsaw, but none have been written in this detailed manner describing the use of the armoured weapons of war. The Warsaw Uprising of 1944 was an heroic and tragic 63-day struggle to liberate Warsaw from Nazi/ German occupation. Bitterly fought by the Polish Home Army, (the Polish resistance group), many men perished in the fight to overthrow the Germans and banish them from Poland. Warsaw could have been one of the first European capitals liberated; however, various military and political miscalculations turned the dice against it. This book is the first to examine the armoured operations during the Warsaw Uprising. It was the first time that tanks had been used so extensively in a city environment, and Tanks in the Uprising looks at all of the vehicles used in this conflict.
Tanks in city environments had, earlier during World War II only been used very rarely, since it is very difficult to use them properly in built up areas. The Uprising in Warsaw was unique, as both sides used tanks in the battle. This book gives a concise picture of the vehicles and the weapon systems that were used. The appendix of the book, in addition, gives lots of interesting facts such as: a list of the units in the Polish Home army and the German army, every vehicle presented in a picture with technical specifications and also many detailed colour illustrations. “Tanks in the Uprising” is a must for anyone who wants to know more about the Uprising in Warsaw!
