The National Armed Forces (NSZ) were a Polish right-wing nationalist underground resistance formation during the Second World War. They have often been falsely portrayed as “Polish fascists” or outright Nazi collaborators. Dr. Chodakiewicz’s painstaking research on this organization has revealed conclusions which debunk this conventional wisdom.
This monograph, focusing on Leonard Zub-Zdanowicz (nom de guerre “The Tooth”), an NSZ commander in central Poland, sheds light on the formation’s fight against Poland’s two enemies – the Nazis and the Communists – as well as the bandits – both ordinary and revolutionary – terrorizing the Polish population.
