    Default British historian Norman Davies is asking for the stories of Polish II Corps veterans and their families.

    "Professor Norman Davies, world-renowned historian and author is currently working on a book devoted to the phenomenon of Anders’ Army. The book will be part of the extensive “Trail of Hope” project. Its aim is to draw attention of the witnesses of those times and the reporters of history.

    "The journey of the Polish soldiers led from the Soviet gulags and prisons to the deserts of Iraq and the fortifications of the Gustav Line, and eventually to Great Britain. It is our desire to document this as never before, to reconstruct the entire ordeal and all the combat of Anders’ Army."

    Check out the project's website here, where you can submit stories from the Polish II Corps: TRAIL---OF---HOPE
