I translated the last three chapters, covering Stefan Bałuk's wartime adventures from outbreak of the Uprising through to his release from Stalinist prison. I agreed to do this, putting in a vast amount of work, scores of hours, because I judged his coverage of the Uprising to be among the clearest account of the ebbs and flows of this, one of the two defining battles of 20th Century Polish history.
