Skirmish Campaigns: Poland '39 – The Black Brigade (SC-JDP-01-004)
On September 1, 1939 the German army invaded Poland and started the greatest war the earth had ever seen. Contrary to popular myth, the Polish army fought with determination and skill. Poland managed to hold out nearly as long against Germany as France and Britian did a year later. This book traces the saga of the brave Polish 10th Mechanized Division, the "Black Brigade" from the opening days of invasion to the fall of Poland. Elements of the intrepid Black Brigade eventually withdrew from Poland and formed the nucleous of the Polish 1st Armored Division that would in 1944 close the Falaise Gap and play a key role in the capture of thousands of German troops.
