|Powstanie Warszawskie 1944|
Tragedy of the Faithful „Wiking“
Communists from the Soviet-backed Polish Committee of National Liberation inspect war trophies including a Wiking Cuff Title in Okólnik gardens in Warszawa on August 14 1944. The Soviets had reached a point a few kilometers from the Polish positions, but made no further headway. Joseph Stalin wanted the insurrection to fail so that the Soviet occupation of Poland would be uncontested. Image: Public domain.
