- Battle for Warsaw the Nazi annihilation of Poland's historic capital /
- Tells the tragic story of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising in which a quarter of a million Poles lost their lives. Outnumbered by more than 3-to-1 and fighting with only handmade or captured weapons, the citizens of Warsaw held out against German Panzer divisions for over 2 months, hoping to liberate their capital for themselves before the nearby Russian troops arrived. Stalin choose to ignore the pleas for help from the beseiged Poles, holding his troops back and allowing the Germans to wipe out the non-Communist Poles before he unleashed his own troops on the survivors.
