Given that Soviet units had advanced as far as the gates of Warsaw in the summer offensive of 1944, the national Polish Home Army (Armia Krajowa) launched a revolt against German occupiers on 1st August 1944. The army was supported by other underground groups, such as the communist partisan force (Armia Ludowa). Led by General Graf Tadeusz Komorowski (1895-1966), around 40,000 Armia Krajowa soldiers attempted to liberate the Polish capital of their own accord before being invaded by the Red Army. Victoriously uprising against the German occupiers was to be the symbol of a strong Poland that would be independent in the future.
