-Armia Krajowa, Home Army-
The Polish Home Army was by far the biggest Polish Resistance Group in Poland during the German-Soviet occupation of Poland. The Home Army was formed in February 14th, 1942.
The Polish Home Army sabotaged German Operations, they destroyed German transports that were heading towards the aid of the Eastern Front against the Soviets, The Polish Home Army as well destroyed badly needed German Supplies for the German Forces. The Home Army Units also carried out thousands of armed raids, as well as participating in Partisan battles with German Police and they did many many more including intelligence operations giving the Allies information about the Concentration Camps.
The Polish Home Army fought many full-scale battles against the Germans during the occupation. Such as
The Polish Home Armies military resistance was estimated to be from the range of 200-600k strong, but it is widely received as being 400k man strong. And the Home Army was loyal to the Polish Government-in-Exile. -
The Home Army primarily got their equipment from arms that have been buried previously by the Polish Forces during the Invasion of Poland 1939, captured from German Forces or purchased from Allies, manufactured by the Home Army itself, and lastly from Allied Airdrops. -
The Home Army was loyal to the Polish Government-in-Exile instead of the Communist Polish Government. Because of this the Soviets killed Polish Home Army members brutally after in many cases helping them in their War Effort of Operation Barborossa and the Soviet Pushback of the Nazis. This in many ways is betrayal and the Polish Home Army for many decades was forcefully forgotten and killed until Poland freed herself from Communism. This is an example of Communist cruelty, and Stalins thirst for power.
