Roger’s book is very important – he explodes myths and uncovers staggering brutality by the 2 totalitarian powers. This podcast is part 1 in which Roger sets the scene, describing the first few days and the Nazi advance.

In part 2, out next week, Roger goes on to talk about what the Poles went through, with numerous atrocities committed by the Nazis and Soviets. I do hope you enjoy our discussion, and please give us a great rating if you do.

In Part Two of the podcast, Roger goes on to talk about the myth of cavalry against tanks, what the Poles went through, with numerous atrocities committed by the Nazis and Soviets, and why we in the United Kingdom are not as familiar with the Polish experience as we should be.
