あらすじ・解説

Following the conquest of Poland by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union in 1939, hundreds of thousands of Polish families were torn from their homes and sent eastward to the arctic wastes of Siberia. Prisoners of war, refugees, those regarded as "social criminals" by Stalin's regime, and those rounded up by sheer chance were all sent "to see the Great White Bear".

However, with Hitler's invasion of the Soviet Union in Operation Barbarossa just two years later, Russia and the Allied powers found themselves on the same side once more. Turning to those that it had previously deemed "undesirable", Russia sought to raise a Polish army from the men, women, and children that it had imprisoned within its labor camps.

In this remarkable work, renowned historian Professor Norman Davies draws from years of meticulous research to recount the compelling story of this unit, the Polish II Corps or "Anders Army", and their exceptional journey from the Gulag of Siberia through Iran, the Middle East, and North Africa to the battlefields of Italy to fight shoulder-to-shoulder with Allied forces. Complete with firsthand accounts from the men and women who lived through it, this is a unique record of one of the most fascinating episodes of World War II.

Amazing story of Polish peoples and never giving up hope for free Poland.

The detail in this book is really amazing as it takes you through the unbelievable and heartbreaking story during and after World War Two. A must read or listen in order to get a full understanding of the Second World War.

No end to the tears and hardships!

I learned so much about the suffering of the polish people from the start of WW11 until well after it ended,
So sad how they were sold out by political agreements that they were not allowed to participate in.
How they fought bravely and lost so many and still did not win their freedom.

An in-depth account of Anders and his army

A typically thorough detailed account of the Anders Army by Norman Davies, with equal focus spent on the fighting men and women, as well as the non-combatant women and children that were swept along the trail.

I can't find fault with the narration of the English parts of the text, but the narrator's attempts at Polish are, whilst not entirely uninformed, unfortunately poor and at times incomprehensible. It would have been better to omit the Polish phrases than to have some of them badly mispronounced.

A compilation of personal stories, historical archives and research moulded into one great story. My review can't give it it's justice. I highly recommend it.

Enthralling story, well read

A wonderful book on a fascinating subject slightly marred by the author’s sometimes unnecessary meandering and the narrator’s obvious struggle with Polish names. I’ve enjoyed the story, rich in detail, well told and beautifully read. The narrator has a wonderful warm voice which is a pleasure to hear. The only problem was the narrator’s obvious and painful struggle with quite frequent Polish words – he really could have used some coaching on basic Polish pronunciation and probably should have worked a bit more on the difficult Polish language. Apart from those minor issues, I’ve enjoyed the book and found the story enthralling.
