August 1st 1944; The Polish Home Army has begun a battle to liberate Warsaw, the first European capital to fall to the Germans nearly five years ago. At 1700 local time, the code signal "Tempest" was given and there was a wave of explosions and rifle fire throughout the city.

Reports from Poland said the timing of the uprising was chosen for maximum effect as the Germans appeared to be about to withdraw from Warsaw. The German frontline has been forced to retreat over the past few months in the face of a sustained attack from the Red Army, forcing them out of the Baltic States, Belorussia and western Poland.
