CONTINUED FROM KICKSTARTER
Fascist Italy's fatal blunder with her sons.


(CONTINUED)  This event should be recalled, not just for
its historical value alone, but mainly as a 21st-century
alert to guard ourselves
against the likelihood
of similar leadership by madmen.

  THE "PHANTOM ARMY" OF LWÓW. 
  AN ENTIRE DIVISION OF ABOUT 2000 ITALIAN 
 SOLDIERS WHO WERE NEVER IN COMBAT 
 BUT, THEY NEVER CAME HOME !! 

This is one of many indignities suffered by the Italian nation
in
1943. A dishonor that had not been resolved to this day.

An outrageous humiliation which had resulted from the fall
of Fascism and the surrender of Italy's Monarchy.

The articles below describe the workings of this unspeakable
controversy: The evidence - the witnesses - the circumstantial
facts - corroborating authorities - opposing authorities - varied
reasoning - arguments - and rationalizations of the matter.

Three-quarters of a century full of confusion, explanations
and denials, EVERYTHING BUT UNCOVERING THE MYSTERY
OF 2000 ITALIAN SOLDIERS WHO VANISHED FROM LWÓW
AFTER SEPT 1943
 -
Failing also to provide answers about
many other missing Italian units
 which were scattered
in the Third Reich, when Italy had been coerced
to declare war on her own sons!

Note the blue 'question mark' which I placed in the above article.
It identifies some of the ignorance which had plagued this
controversy. Specifically, my 'question mark' points to the
assertion that "there was no armed resistance in Lwów
!!
 
HOW ABSURD !! The Partisans of Lwów fought and resisted
against 4 separate occupations during WWII - The Germans
and the Russians occupied Lwów two times each, directly
one after the other - total 4 times!  M
any 'Home Army' AK
Partisans sacrificed themselves to protect Lwów and
Poland's Eastern Borderlands, their beloved Kresy. 
 
The photo below shows 21 resistance fighters
of Lwów - and there were many more!
 
They upheld heroic resistance and fought two vicious enemies
in four consecutive phases:  1) In Sept 1939 their first enemy
came from the west.  2) Then, little more than 2 weeks later
another one, more vicious than the first, came from the east!
3) He left 18 months later when the first one came back from
the west, 
more arrogant than before - 4) Then about 3 years
later the beast from the east came back ... 
... and he didn't let go until 1989!
 

Likewise, the spirit of Lwów's AK Partisans didn't let go either!
Today the spirit of Armia Krajowa lives ... on the internet!

The article above identifies the Cold War as a critical factor for lack
of information related to Italy's missing 'Phantom Division' of Lwów.

Three years prior to Stalin's Iron Curtain, the 
AK Home Army fought
Soviet troops in the streets of Lwów, 23-27 July 1944. Two days later,
Lwów came under Soviet domination once again and for the next
45-years Lwów and all of Poland remained captive ...
... in the grip of Communist Bolsheviks.
 
It had been 45-years of highly censured control by the Soviet Union,
during which very little information had been shared with the west.
The lack of Soviet cooperation, however, did not assign culpability
for Italy's 'Phantom Division' on the Russians. The primary suspect
continued to be Lwów's Wehrmacht unit to which ...
... Italy's 'lost Division' had been attached.
 
But, soon after the war, Italians had neither sovereign recognition to
request an investigation, nor any authority to conduct one themselves.

Also, steady 
break-down of diplomacy between east and west Berlin
postponed the likelihood for an investigation in Soviet-held Lwów.
 
Later, Stalin's infamous Iron Curtain completely shut-off the possibility
of finding any traces of It
aly's 'Phantom Division' in Lwów. 
 
While fighting in the Italian campaign, General Władysław Anders and
his brave Polish 2nd Corps often doubted the 'friendly promises' made
to them by Winston Churchill. General Anders had never trusted Stalin
as being one of the "Big3" who would supposedly liberate Poland.
Stalin's Soviet armies, he reasoned, had been
 fighting Germany
from the east, with no oversight by Anglo-America.

As late as 1944, however, the Anglo-Americans still had faith in their
alliance with the Soviet leader.  In July of that year Roosevelt and
Churchill should've taken notice of Stalin's false cooperation in
the war, when his Soviet forces fought the AK Home Army in the
streets of Lwów!  Also, they should've noticed that the following
month, August 1944, Stalin had already restored his previous
Bolshevik oppression, without delay!

The short excerpt below is from "WWII Behind Closed Doors" by
renown BBC Historian Laurence Rees. King George VI of Great
Britain is seated at dinner with Winston Churchill and General
Władysław Anders in Perugia Italy. When the Polish 2nd Corps
Regimantal band played their very fashionable song titled
"Only in Lwów," the King found its tune to be quite pleasant.
 
Unbeknown to them and to all Polish 2nd Corps troops,
only a few days later the USSR
would take possession
of Lwów and keep it for the next 45 years.


During the 1930s "Only in Lwów" had been used in the soundtrack
of a very popular comedy film titled "The Tramp" which depicts the
concept of abundant happiness living in Lwów.  King George liked
the tune, but only General Anders knew that the significance of that
song gave his 2nd Corps troops the incentive and ...
... the reason for which they had been fighting.

Below are two 'YouTube' links of the popular tune "Only in Lwów"
which had pleased King George VI.  Both are short pleasant videos.
The first is a segment from Lwów's popular comedy-film "The Tramp."
The other is a formal recording by "Waltz from Poland" and its video
contains images of Lwów just like General Wladyslaw Anders
and his valiant troops remembered the city.
