 SIKORSKI: NO SIMPLE SOLDIER
World War II's Unsung Allied Leader—
A Visual History

by General Stefan "Starba" Bałuk
&
Terry A. Tegnazian

 

Charismatic statesman...brilliant military strategist...visionary European diplomat...plucked virtually overnight from a decade of "wilderness years"...General Władysław Sikorski (1881–1943) led the Polish nation after the Nazi German and Soviet invasions of Poland in September 1939.

During the most desperate year of World War II—from the fall of France in June 1940 until Hitler's invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941—Poland remained Great Britain's largest ally due to Sikorski's tireless efforts.

As both Prime Minister and Commander-in-Chief, Sikorski's commanding presence, skillful diplomacy, and decisiveness under pressure earned the respect of Churchill and Roosevelt.

On July 4, 1943, Sikorski was killed in a mysterious plane crash that still fuels conspiracy theories 70 years later.

Sikorski was "no simple soldier." His dynamic life is told through nearly 300 photographs, maps and illustrations. First time in English.

 

“A man of remarkable preeminence, both as a statesman and a soldier. Leader of the largest allied force in this country [Great Britain] and our first ally in this war.”

                                                        —Winston Churchill
