Summary

This audiobook shows how much city of Warsaw and its residents suffered under German Nazi occupation. It also shows that all of the destruction was planned before the war and that there were no accidents. The city of Warsaw was to disappear to be later reborn as a small German city of Warschau. You will see how the plan was being implemented from the first days of the war, through brutal occupation, Ghetto uprising, Warsaw uprising, and final and total destruction. You will see how rapidly the city's population shrunk from 1.3 million to 1,000.

A must-read (listen!)

From the very outset this sheds a very vivid and disturbing light on a part of history I was woefully unaware of. The passion for the subject comes across in both the writing and the narration. I am an avid reader and Audible listener but rarely have I found myself so utterly incensed by what I have read/heard. To think that this all happened within living memory sickens me and I applaud both author and narrator for the way they have bought this warning from our very recent history to life. Now all we need is for people to listen...

63-day struggle to liberate Warsaw from the Nazis

The true story of the Warsaw uprising of August-October 1944 as Russian troops reached the Polish capital. The troops then waited on the orders of Stalin as the Germans beat the under armed Polish resistance Home Army and totally destroyed the city,

"17 Jan 2018. 1945, Soviet forces “liberated” the city of Warsaw. In reality they marched into a huge pile of rubble where an ancient and historic capital had once stood"

Very well written and narrated,

How did not know any of this before!

My first impression of this book was that I couldn’t believe I didn’t know any of this before. Isn’t this something we should all know about?!
I guess some people do but not me. Not a subject even touched on in school and I’m now 66yrs. A shocking in depth account of the premeditated Killing of Warsaw. Brilliantly accurate writing and account of historic events by the author Kris Trelski.
Narrated by the talented Jon C Dixon who held my attention with every word. He has the ability to take you on a journey from the very first word to the last. He animates the story and brings it to life in front of you as if you are there, feeling the emotions.
Not to overlook the work of the editing by Josh Elliott.
I highly recommend this book to anyone, enlightening and easy listening.
