This Note is the initial result of a study of wartime missions of the Polish Internal Front. It briefly describes Soviet/Pact operational concepts in a theater strategic offensive and includes a comprehensive discussion of the status and strength of the Internal Front, which is larger than the External Front and has a highly complex structure, composition, and division of responsibilities. In other sections the author describes the wartime missions of the Polish Internal Front forces; analyzes the most important wartime operations; discusses wartime interaction between the Polish Internal Front and adjacent Soviet/Pact forces; and explores different approaches to the wartime role of the Polish Internal Front on the part of Warsaw and Moscow.
