2010.01.31 - WarHammer and the battle of Wizna

yesterday evening i reminded myself incredible intro to Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War. i started to look for other intros that were present in other Warhammer games. a collection i recommend to see goes here:

  1. Warhammer 40.000 Dawn of war (the of i've mentioned before)

looking for more i've came across Swedish band called Sabaton. they play power metal and do it very well. i got interested a little more and found out that they have written a song about Polish soldiers fighting in the battle of Wizna, during world war II, who stand in power of 720 man and few bunkers against 42000 (yes - 42 thousands!) Nazi army, armed with over 600 tanks, air support, lightly armored vehicles and artillery for 3 days, giving time for Warsaw to organize the defense. nearly everyone of them died, standing the ground until the end. for this, the battle of Wizna is often referred to as “Polish Thermopylae”. i strongly advise you to read more about this battle and listen to Sabaton's 40-1 song (see also: official '40-1' video).
