Norman Davies makes an appeal for joining the international project about Anders Army. We encourage you to visit andersarmy.com and help us with the reconstruction of the trail taken by Anders' Army.

About project

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Monte Cassino, the most significant triumph of the army led by General Anders. This is a unique opportunity to recall the phenomenon of that formation and to present the important, often underestimated role that it played in shaping the post-war world.
Professor Norman Davies, world-renowned historian and author is currently working on a book devoted to the phenomenon of Anders' Army. The book will be part of the extensive "Trail of Hope" project. Its aim is to draw attention of the witnesses of those times and the reporters of history.
The journey of the Polish soldiers led from the Soviet gulag and prisons to the deserts of Iraq and the fortifications of the Gustav Line, and eventually to Great Britain and other countries. It is our desire to document this as never before, to reconstruct the entire ordeal and all the combat of Anders' Army.
In his book, Professor Norman Davies plans to use both existing archival resources and testimonies that are being collected only now. We would like to gather as many as possible, basing on the idea of crowdsourcing: each of us can contribute to the virtual archives of Anders' Army by adding photographs, memories or sketches that have never been published before. The interactive map of the Trail of Hope is being developed
on the platform established by MillionYou.
The platform also holds a host of testimonies, serving as a supplement to Professor Davies' book. We would be honoured if you could participate in the project, share testimonies, photos and stories. If the project meets your interests, we would be very thankful if you could share it via your communication channels.
