Description
 
This album "From Buzuluk to Monte Cassino," is an illustrated history of the Polish Army in the USSR, the Polish Army in the East, the Independent Carpathian Rifle Brigade and the Polish 2nd Corps.  It is often overlooked that these soldiers who were prisoners in Soviet camps became the future cadre of the 2nd Corps that subsequently fought at Monte Cassino.  The fate of the soldiers of the Independent Carpathian Rifle Brigade was quite different. After September 1939, most of them escaped from internment camps in Hungary and Romania and were transferred to the Middle East. After the defeat of France the brigade moved to British territory.  In August 1941, they were transferred to Tobruk which was encircled by Italian and German troops.  In this battle they wrote another glorious chapter in the history of the Polish Army.

Soldiers of the Polish campaign, of the Battle of France and of the African campaign and prisoners of Soviet labor camps became soldiers of the 2nd Polish Corps.
It was the author's intention to introduce readers to little-known fragments from the history of the Polish Armed Forces in the West, especially the 2nd Corps role in the fourth Battle of Monte Cassino.
This album was published on the 65th anniversary of the Battle of Monte Cassino and is a tribute to all soldiers of the Polish 2nd Corps who fought and died there.
