Summary

Charismatic statesman...brilliant military strategist...visionary European diplomat. Plucked from a decade of "wilderness years," General Wladyslaw Sikorski (1881–1943) led the Polish nation in World War II.

During the most desperate year of the war—June 1940 fall of France to June 1941 German invasion of Soviet Union—Poland remained Great Britain's largest ally due to Sikorski's tireless efforts.

As Prime Minister and Commander-in-Chief, Sikorski's commanding presence, skillful diplomacy, and decisiveness under pressure earned the respect of Churchill and Roosevelt. On July 4, 1943, Sikorski was killed in a mysterious plane crash that still fuels conspiracy theories 70 years later.

Sikorski was "no simple soldier." Dynamic life told through visual history, including groundbreaking digital extras.
