1st Polish Independent Parachute Brigade

Hi Everyone,

I can’t believe I forgot to make an actual post about this! A while a go I created a Chain of Command force list for the 1st Polish Independent Parachute Brigade and at the time I forgot to put a post up about it (even though the list has been available for a couple weeks now).

The 1st Polish Independent Parachute Brigade has a very turmultuous history, particularly its commander Major

General Stanislaw Sosabowsk and his penchant for not mincing words. Initially created to assist the Polish in the Warsaw rising, the request was denied and the Brigade forced to fight as part of Operation Market Garden. Whilst excelling in the field, going above and beyond, the operation was doomed to fail and their vocal commander was to bear the brunt of the blame.

You can find the force list below, along with some excellent historical references.



Special thanks go to the following people, I strongly encourage you to visit their websites:

Alexander Kawczynski, for his invaluable assistance with the document, especially the force organisation.

Paradata for allowing me to use some background material.
