General Count Tadeusz Komorowski (1 June 1895 – 24 August 1966), better known by the name Bór-Komorowski (after one of his wartime code-names: Bór - "The Forest") was a Polish military leader.

Komorowski was born in Lwów, Austria-Hungary, and served in the Austro-Hungarian Army during World War I, and after the war became an officer in the Polish Army, rising to command the Grudziądz Cavalry School.

Bor-Komorowski fought the German invasion of Poland in 1939, and went underground when Poland was conquered. In 1944, he helped launched the Warsaw Uprising, but with minimum aid from Britain and none from the Soviet Union (whose forces were only 20 km away), the Uprising soon fell. Bor-Komorowski was taken prisoner in October, 1944, and remained in captivity for the remainder of the war. After he was liberated, Bor-Komorowski traveled to London. He served as the Prime Minister of the Polish Government in Exile from 1947-1949, a government that was not recognized by the West. He published his memoirs in 1951.

Tadeusz Bor-Komorowski in WorldwarEdit

Tadeusz Bor-Komorowski fought against Germany's invasion of Poland at the beginning of World War II in 1939. He helped organize the Polish underground in the Kraków area, with the code-name Bór. In July 1941 he became deputy commander of the Home Army (Armia Krajowa or AK).

When the Race invaded in 1942, the Jews of Poland helped the Race overthrow the occupying Germans. Although he hated the Germans, Komorowski liked the Jews no better, and he was dismayed by what he perceived as their favored status with the Lizards. He particularly resented Moishe Russie's relationship with the Race's military governor in Warsaw, Zolraag.[1] Nonetheless, he ultimately supported the Race against both Germany and the Soviet Union during the initial invasion, although he was against the Race's initial proposal to disarm his Home Army.[2]
