When Polish resistance fighters rose up to expel the German occupation forces in Warsaw, Himmler appointed SS General Erich von dem bach Zelewski to take charge of the battle. After three days of heavy fighting, the 5,000 Army, SS and Polizei troops cracked part of the Polish Home Army defenses. The Dirlewangers, with support from the Posen Polizei and armored support fought the Poles for possession of the cemetery and town hall. The Germans were surprised to meet captured panzers in the hands of the resistance fighters. . .
