The Polish War

Polish soldiers fought in many countries and many fronts of World War II. The event “The Polish War” will be devoted to their fight and the fate after the war.

The 1st Polish Independent Parachute Brigade in Great Britain

“Roger Moorhouse, author of “First to Fight”, will tell the fascinating story of Poland’s defence against German and Soviet invasion in 1939, one of the least understood campaigns of World War Two.

From Poland and mainland Europe, to fighting from and settling in England, the talk will explain the experiences of Polish servicemen and women and their significant role in the allied victory.

Roger Moorhouse is a historian and author specialising in modern German and Central European history, with particular interest in Nazi Germany, the Holocaust and World War Two in Europe. He is the author of a number of books, among others “First to Fight: The Polish War 1939” – on the September Campaign that opened World War Two in Europe.

This talk is hosted by the Sherwood Forest Trust as part of the Spirit of Wartime Sherwood project, funded with thanks by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The online meeting will be held on 30 September 2021 at 19:00 CEST.
