War Diaries – Part VI
Two of the main characters in “War Mongrels” represent the so-called "Silent Unseen" (Polish “Cichociemni”). These were special forces, trained in Great Britain and formed by Polish men, sent to perform deadly and dangerous tasks. They were secretly dropped over occupied Poland to aid the resistance, bring know-how, money, and equipment. BTW: the last of these heroes lives. His name is Aleksander Tarnawski, he is a citizen of our Gliwice, and is now exactly 100 years old. Enjoy the next episode of “War Diaries”!
