Until 1970 the Katyn Massacre was generally considered - if it was considered at all - as a fading historical event, its victims consigned to oblivion by a conspiracy of officiai silence which has grown ever thicker with the years.
In 1971 that state of affairs was abruptly shattered. On television, in newspapers, in Parliament and Congress the events in the Katyn forest in Spring 1940 were exposed to the uncomfortable glare of public scrutiny - inspired to a large extent by the publication of Louis FitzGibbon's first book Katyn: a crime without parallel.
For the first time in thirty years the international conscience was awakened to the horror and injustice of the 14,500 Polish victims of the Soviet NKD who lie frozen and silent in Katyn forest and two other unknown places in the USSR - the élite of Poland brutally murdered for the Pax Sovietica. They can have no peace until the world pronounces judgement, but while the public debate continues, the shroud of silence seems to grow ever more impenetrable. This book examines the events of 1971 It is a definitive and factual record of a fragment of history, a textbook too, for further action The Katyn Cover-up, throws new and important light on the British Government's role in the affair by the first publication of a confidential report, the implications of which call for urgent enquiry.

This book is dedicated to all those others, probably mostly in Polland, who would have wished to make part in what has and will take place, but who have been unable to do so.

Almost crushed by the onslaught of the German Wehrmacht, the Poles were finally betrayed by the classical 'stab in the back' delivered by Russia on and after the 17 September, 1939.
