‘Sikorski’s Tourists’ – Forgotten WW2 Polish Allies

History Documentaries

One Allied nation contributed huge numbers of forces to the war on the Western Front, but is often overlooked in retellings of the campaigns in North Africa, Italy and Northwest Europe – Poland. Polish men and women undertook long and hazardous journeys after their country was overrun by the Germans in 1939 to fight again, with hundreds of thousands eventually being reformed into the Polish Armed Forces in the West. They were nicknamed ‘Sikorski’s Tourists’ after their commander-in-chief.
