Description

The area we are striving to recreate is Wola Gułowska and it's surroundings (10x10km). It's the place of the last battle of regular Polish units during the Invasion of Poland in September '39 (though the battle actually took place in October). SGO "Polesie" (Independent Operational Group) - the Polish unit that fought there - comprised of the remains of various formations of the Polish Army: infantry, cavalry, police units, KOP, Riverine Flotilla of the Polish Navy, artillery, some armor and reportedly a few civil planes adapted for recon missions. The unit fought both Soviet as well as German armies and finally surrendered because of lack of ammunition on 05 October 1939. Wola Gułowska witnessed heavy fights in the last part of the battle especially near the graveyard and the church.
