Uprising '44 by JohnnyCopperboots Uprising '44 by JohnnyCopperboots
Young Polish soldier defending his city. Gloria victis. I salute you! 
Fountain pen + 8b pencil

The Warsaw Uprising (Polishpowstanie warszawskie) was a major World War II operation by thePolish resistance Home Army (PolishArmia Krajowa) to liberate Warsaw from Nazi Germany. The rebellion was timed to coincide with the Soviet Union's Red Army approaching the eastern suburbs of the city and the retreat of German forces. However, the Soviet advance stopped short, enabling the Germans to regroup and demolish the city while defeating the Polish resistance, which fought for 63 days with little outside support. The Uprising was the largest single military effort taken by any European resistance movement of World War II.

A no trzeba przyznać, że dają czadu. Nie jestem ich największą fanką, ale z chęcią słucham ich kawałków. To jest naprawdę fajne uczucie, kiedy wiesz, że ktoś tak sławny na cały świat śpiewa o twoim tak mało znaczącym w świecie kraju...
