A great book

This is phenomenal book about the Warsaw Uprising. I like the way Davies organized the book and included numerous excepts from diaries, letters and recollections from those who fought. In particular the section concerning the German occupation leading up to the Rising was most interesting and obviously well researched. The author describes the incredible organization of the Polish Home Army and how they outfoxed the Nazis and responded to changing circumstances inside Poland. Thank God the book was written after the fall of Communism.
