Description

Description
The memorial is engraved with a large eagle and a detailed battle scene.  The inscription reads: "Bog, Honor I Ojczyzna - Poland's contribution in the second World War, 1939-1945. This memorial is dedicated to the members of the Polish Armed Forces who gallantly participated in active combat on land, high seas and in the air. These brave men and women fought for your freedom and ours alongside the allies on the western front, as well as in Poland, as the underground home army and intelligence gathering network. Passerby, tell the world that we were faithful from the beginning to the very end in the struggle for freedom, peace and justice for all mankind (followed by a list of military campaigns)."
