free download First to Fight: The Polish War 1939 free download æ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ä Roger Moorhouse Roger Moorhouse ä 9 summary Diaries from all sides Roger Moorhouse's dramatic account of the military events is entwined with a human story of courage and suffering and a dark tale of diplomatic betrayal'Important Moorhouse has a wonderful knack for reminding us about the parts of the Second World War that we are in danger of forgetting' Dan Snow Shortlisted for the Duke of Wellington Medal for Military History 20. Being of Polish extract on my father s side I am always drawn to books on the modern history of Poland Mostly it seems to be about the victims of the holocaust This tragic side of the history of Poland is a very important part of the story However the author of this book has brought to life the tragedy and heroism of the Polish Army and Air Force during September 1939 This needed to be told and brings to light what the Poles especially civilians endured at the hands of the invading forces both German and Russian Soviet The Poles never stood a chance The only gratification in the story was the punishment that was inflicted on German soldiers It s a shame to have these sentiments but I am of an age where I have known people who went through this trauma including members of my own family sent off to Germany to work Apologists might loosely call this a Nazi invasion and put all the atrocities down to the Nazis However it is my contention that the mind set of the Wehrmacht is that they were invading Poland and as they had been instructed by the party and the Nazi elite Poland was fair game and an inferior race Even Goebbels had stated that Asia began at the Polish border These were ordinary German soldiers and pilots willing to kill civilians It was pointed out to me by a young Polish man in Poland during the 1980s that it was not just a Nazi phenomenon but it was Germans who did the killing Obviously a difficult wound to heal but nevertheless a statement containing a kernel of truth Other books will highlight some other aspects of the story such as Revolution from Abroad by Jan T Gross about the invasion by the Soviets and how the Poles in Byelorussia and the Ukraine were deposed from any positions of authority this is mentioned in the author s bibliography Also another book not mentioned but a propos is Forgotten Holocaust The Poles under German Occupation 1939 1944 by Richard C Lukas What I read in this book really brought home to me the suffering of the Poles during those tumultuous weeks in September 1939 when the country was torn apart This should become an essential part of any curriculum of the history of the Second World War My parting shot would be that given the terror and murder perpetrated by Germans and Russians and the long fight for Poland to gain a real sovereignty post Soviet Bloc the first thing that the younger Poles did was to skip the country and head to Germany and the UK Why Was not the suffering of your forebears enough to stimulate your desire to rebuild your country once again

free download First to Fight: The Polish War 1939 free download æ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ä Roger Moorhouse Roger Moorhouse ä 9 summary On 1 September 1939 when German tanks trucks and infantry crossed the Polish border and the Luftwaffe began bombing Poland's towns and cities The Polish army fought bravely but could not withstand the concentrated attack When the Red Army invaded from the east the country's fate was sealedThis is the first history of the Polish war for almost half a century Drawing on letters memoirs and. An amazing book which explodes the still very much alive Nazi and Soviet propaganda myths of an easy German victory and a merely protectivetactical police intervention in the east of Poland by the SovietsAs a narrative this is gripping stuff drawing on eye witness accounts from both sides together with military and political analysis The nightmare scale of the war crimes against both civilians and POWs including specific targeting of refugees on the road and bombing of urban centres of no military significance is dispassionately presented together with accounts of some of the many massacres committed by German and Soviet troops This is difficult to read without deep revulsion and paved the way for what was to follow in what was clearly a racial warPerhaps the most lasting impression apart from the bravery of the Polish defence and the bitterness of the fighting is the weakness and naivety of the British and especially the French response It is a disturbing lesson for today and it also begs the uestion what would have happened if the French had honoured their treaty obligations and really attacked Germany at a time when almost the whole of the German army was fighting in PolandThe other is the mismatch between the kind of thing we see in the current history books cavalry against tanks Polish air force destroyed on the ground etc and the truth with up to 600 German aircraft and 1000 armoured vehicles destroyed and significant losses on the Soviet sideRoger Moorhouse has produced a tour de force He is a very talented historian
