    Last but not least:
    Henryk Pajak : book is called "Fate"
    Published in late 60's as literally one of the first books dealing with 27th Division, has Por "Remus" on quite few pages.
    Henryk Pajak also co-wrote the "Red nights" also around 1965, he was the first author crazy enough around these times to write about Wolyn and 27th.

    Very impressive thread indeed. I'm glad it resurfaced as I had never heard about the 27 Wołyńska Dywizja Piechoty.

    Wish there was a way the Polish books could be translated and reprinted in English. I really think the Polish government should act this if no private publishers do, and make these books available to English speakers worldwide.

    These histories need to be told.

    I purchased this set not long ago. This is the AK Cross given by the London Government and later by Polish Government Also there is a award of Army Medal, 2nd time. I decided to try to find out who the soldier was, and what unit he was in. The papers only say " 27th Infantry Division " Also the fact that we are dealing with enlisted soldier not Officer makes it that much more difficult .
    But one never knows what he may find.....
    Stanislaw Zytynski nom de guerre "Sep "vulture" was in " Krwawa Luna " Battalion, 2nd Company. He was one of my Uncle "Remus" soldiers.....

    I found "Sep' mentioned in a "Memories Dec 1943- May 1945 authored by Olgierd Kowalski, who was also in Battalion "Luna". Olgierd Kowalski in 1947 was sent to Prison for five years for helping a friend who was a Polish Jew escape to the West.

    " Soldiers of the 2nd Company, "Kot " and "Sep" (St. Zytynski) trapped a german soldiers in the Forrest and made him surrender. When the german soldier raised his hands " Sep" got close to him and "Kot" as a big time amateur photographer tried to get a picture. In that moment german soldier threw a grenade by "Kot's " feet. Luckily when he was unscrewing the top to get to the pull ring the soldier unscrewed the fuse, because the thrown grande did not have the fuze in it. It is significant that the guys did not lay a hand on the german soldier for that. After interrogation the german soldier was given to the soviets. It is a fact that his boots were taken, because there was a big shoe shortage. "

    These are the the first eight lines on top.
