Warsaw Uprising Powered By Docstoc
					Storming through the Germans, the Red Army reached the outskirts
of Warsaw on July 31. Believing that their liberation was finally at
hand, the populace of Warsaw rose in revolt against the Germans.
That August, 40,000 Poles took control of the city, but the
anticipated Soviet assistance never came. Over the next two
months the Germans flooded the city with soldiers and brutally put
down the revolt.
