Introduction:

BFP 5: Poland in Flames (PiF) covers the conflict that triggered the start of World War 2 in Europe when Germany invaded Poland in September, 1939. This campaign was much more than the German Blitzkrieg overrunning a helpless Polish opponent. Rather, the Poles, deficient in both quality and quantity to the German Army as well as having to fight against Slovak and Russian forces, put up stiff resistance under the most dire of circumstances. The contents of PiF depict this brave struggle against overwhelming odds.
