"TRIBUTE TO JOHN WARD
HERO OF THE WARSAW UPRISING"













The Warsaw Uprising was one of the most brutal and destructive urban battles of
World War Two. The military might of the Wehrmacht was launched against the
Polish insurgents with all its force.   

Amidst the maelstrom there was one British Officer, Lieutenant John Ward,  who
had the courage to remain in Warsaw throughout the Uprising.  
He enlisted in the Armia Krajowa,
and was the "Voice" of the Polish Resistance.
