Poland fights on >>>
The first military campaign of the Second World War, lost in September 1939, and quick disintegration of the Polish state brought, apart from destruction and the loss of human lives, a complete surprise to the Polish society, which felt betrayed by the pre-war political régime (so-called sanacja). In that climate the Poles with understanding and hopes received news about creation of the Polish government in exile in France, led by a renown political opponent of the sanacja régime, General Władysław Sikorski, as well as the Polish Army in France under his command.
