    As we all know September Campaign started in September, 1 1939, but when did it ended? Did it end when Warsaw had fallen on September, 27? As far as I know there were fights until October, 6. General Franciszek Koleeberg collected about 16,000 troops under his command and intended to move westward to reinforce the Warsaw defenses. Out of radio communication, they had no idea that Warsaw had fallen and they continued to push west. Encountering the German 13 Motorized Inf. Div. they fought a for-day battle around Kock before finally surrendering on October, 6 1939. Did polish government surrender to Germans or Russians? Poland was the only one country that did not surrender to Germans. Poland was the only one country that had fight from 39 to 45. So why do I hear from different “history channels” that September Campaign was lees than month? And why ““Popular history” of WW2 and the Blitzkrieg generally shines the spotlight on the Poles and their poor showing against the Germans.”

    Mariusz you are 100% right,Poland never surrendered there were units like the famous Hubal unit that never stopped fighting,My Great Uncle and Grandfather fought in a unit that fought on until September 1st 1939-May 7th 1945 but it doesnt stop there units were also fighting the communists up to 1960!


    Mariusz I also dont like history channel when they show something about ww2 they on show America Canada and Britain I have respect for these countries and the men which fought for them but I have no respect for the people making the programs.On September 1st 2009 I watched the history channel and do you know what was on?A show about the Battle of Britain, I dont mean to offend anyone but come on...

    Hey Denxson,
    The color didnt differ for any of the braches,the uniforms started out as green but faded while in storage in to a khaki color.Your right about the blanket/great coat,normal infantry carried thers in there tornister (back pack)
