EVERY WAR HAS ITS HEROES. However, a war like this and such heroes happen once upon a century.
At the Baltic banks of Westerplatte, on September 1, 1939, salvos of the largest Nazi vessel Schlezwig-Holstein "visiting" the harbor, announced the beginning of the WWII.

Yet for seven days the Poles maintained their increasingly suicidal foothold. 1939. THE SECRET OF WESTERPLATTE is a war drama of the fight of two commanders and their men.
