Played By: Mike K. Nationality: Polish Service: Polish Army MOS: Combat Engineer Andrzej Kowalski was born in Lodz, Poland in 1918, the seventh son of a seventh son. He had an adventurous childhood, as his father made sure he learned many different skills as he vacationed in many parts of Europe. He was particularly fond of trips to the Alps, where he enjoyed mountaineering. His father, a history professor, later moved the family to Warsaw to teach at the university.  Andrzej excelled in science, math and engineering from his father’s wisdom and extensive library. Andrzej began his studies in engineering at his father’s university, but in realty his father had already given him an equivalent college education as the child of a professor. While in college, Andrzej saw the storm clouds of war moving closer. Several of his older brothers were already in the military and he felt the pull to protect the homeland, but kept to his studies. One night, towards the end of his sophomore year, Andrzej had a visit from his father. Not really unusual, except for the fact that his father had passed away seven months earlier. His father told him of the war to come, and that Andrzej must leave the university and study the ways of war for the battles to come. Andrzej left college the next day and joined the Polish Army. He breezed through basic and showed impressive talent in engineering and demolitions. His older brother Piotr, a Colonel in the Polish Army, helped Anderzej get an assignment for additional engineering and demo training in England. Andrzej packed up his father’s books and flew off to England. Andrzej excelled once again and consistently placed at the top of his class. His British colleagues nicknamed him “Seven” after they heard about him being a seventh son. The war began 7 days before his graduation. Andrzej was notified of his transfer to Group 17 under Allied Command soon after. He has not heard of any news of his brother (Piotr) and fears the worst for Poland and his family that remained in Warsaw.
