Popski’s private army

Living History

hi,

my grandfather told me about a russian given a british commission in the british army in ww2 called popski, he was given charge of some arabsand his troop was called popski’s private army. My grandfather fought alongside him until he was promoted a general and the last time pap saw him was an assault on lake commachio when he saw him with one arm missing in 1945.

can anybody confirm this?
