• A new account of the Polish forces fighting during the Narvik campaign, researched from Polish sources

Examines the achievments and limitations of Allied co-operation

This work is about the co-operation between the Allies in Norway between April and June 1940 by initially considering the military-politics of the period August 1939 until the German invasion of Norway in April 1940. Much of the work examines the role of the Independent Podhalian Rifle Brigade and its interaction and dependency on the Allies as the Polish troops found themselves under French command. Other aspects of the Norwegian Campaign are also explored including inter-service co-operation amongst the Allies, how the Western Allies were still uncertain who their enemy really was and how successful Narvik actually was and what it meant for the UK during the summer of 1940.


…this is stirring stuff.
Miniature Wargames - John Drewienkiewicz

I would recommend this book to pretty much anyone with an interest in the Second World War, and the early war period especially.
Wargames, Soldiers, and Strategy

First rate book…The author is right across the detail and describes the venture very well. He also very effectively places its outcomes in the correct historical perspective.
