Rising '44: The Battle for Warsaw
by Norman Davies
Viking, January 2004

"RISING '44 - The Battle for Warsaw" (Viking, July 25, 2004) is a monumental new recounting of the Warsaw Uprising by the distinguished and outspoken historian, Norman Davies, a fellow at Wolfson College, Oxford, author of "God's Playground: A History of Poland", and regarded by many as the foremost historian of modern Poland.

"Much more than the story of the Warsaw uprising. It is one of the most savage indictments of Allied malfeasance yet leveled by an historian. Unsparing in his depictions of the slaughter of the Polish fighters and the destruction of their capital, Davies challenges the popular assumption that World War II was entirely the triumph of good over evil." - Carlo D'Este, The New York Times
