The first fully documented account of the ill-fated Warsaw uprising to be published in Poland. In 1945 the author was designated by the Home Army to gather sources for its history. Written in 1948-50, despite harassments from the Communist régime, it could be published only in 1957. The book treats the military side of the uprising and keeps clear of the political issues that were involved.
