121,200 words By the end of WWII there were nearly a quarter of a million Poles in the Polish Armed Forces serving under British command. For them, victory was not sweet: half, or 123,000, felt unable to return to the "People's Republic" that came into being in Poland. The website, the thesis of Dr. Mark Ostrowski, examines the circumstances, reasons and consequences of the repatriation decisions made by these men and women.
