Norman Davies, "Rising '44"

Recommended Posts

Just picked this book up today. Its about, well, the Warsaw Rising in 44, of course. Has anyone read this book? If so, care to share your opinion?

I remember a thread a while back about someone making some Rising scenarios. How are those coming along? I'll probably be keen on trying them out after reading this book, if its any good.

Norman Davies is a *fannnnntastic* historian. Check out his History of Poland and The Isles: A History of Britain.

His book Europe is weaker though, too little detail.

Haven't read Rising '44 -- thanks for the heads up.

Mila 18 by Leon Uris is about the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising one year earlier. Grim-grim-grim. But also an amazing book.
