Polish soldiers on the red square


What many people might not know is that after the epic defeat in 1939 by Nazi-Germany Polish forces regrouped in western Europe and Russia and fought on the side of British, US and even Soviet forces. They liberated Monte Cassino in Italy and moved into Berlin for the final capture of the German capital. When WWII ended Polish forces have been missing in the victory parade in 1945 in London! Poland has fallen into the Soviet domain and Churchill didn’t want to anger Stalin. So the picture of Polish soldiers on the red square in the 65th victory anniversary parade in Moscow is really something new! A late acknowledgment of the polish contribution of victory in WWII.
