Warsaw Uprising of 1944 - members of the Home Army (Armia Krajowa).    The two-month battle that began on August 1, 1944 was fought on the city's streets, from within its buildings and down in its sewers. It ended tragically for the Polish inhabitants of Warsaw with a staggering loss of life. And to make this catastrophe even worse, Adolf Hitler was so enraged by the Polish people’s anti-Nazi revolt that he ordered Warsaw bombed and burned to the ground.
