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.
