Using newly found archival footage and remarkable eyewitness accounts from survivors, Battle For Warsaw tells the tragic story of the 1944 Warsaw uprising in which nearly a quarter of a million Poles lost their lives. Outnumbered by more than 3 to 1 and fighting with only homemade or captured weapons, the citizens of Warsaw held out against the German panzer divisions for over two months, hoping to liberate their capital for themselves before the nearby Russian troops arrived. Stalin chose to ignore the pleas for help from the besieged Poles, holding his troops back and allowing the Germans to wipe out the non-Communist Poles before he unleashed his own troops on them.
