British campaign in Norway (Battle of Narvik)

Actualy,Franco British operation,the Poles served with the French.

Operation Jubilee (Battle of Dieppe)

Interesting as this is considered a Canadian operation with British support and US observers. Were the Poles part of the Navy effort?

Battle of Arnhem (part of Operation Market Garden)

technicaly the Battle of driel and Oosterbeek for Polish involvement.

Some truelly heroic acheivments highlighted there mate,but a bit vague,mind you,it is wikipedia..:)

For anyone who wants to listen to music connected with WWII, I suggest Sabaton. They are from Sweden and many of their videos on Youtube have Polish subtitles. It might make some people here proud(er) :)
