Wojtek: The Bear That Went to War

This is the story of Wojtek the Bear - a magnificent 500lb bear who fought in World War Two alongside a band of Polish soldiers, shared their beer and cigarettes, and eventually their fate.

Told by those that knew him and those that are captivated by his legend, his story captures the imagination and tells a very different war tale.
