The first is that it appears that a total of only 40,000 German troops were used. If the above casualty figures are accurate, this woud mean that the German troops fielded, which were not of good quality, suffered 65% casualties. As far as I am aware, no German formation of comparable size, even those of good quality, were prepared to endure 65% casualties in any other offensive action of the war.
You missed one thing - replacements. What's more in the ending part of uprasing two panzer div. were transfered for Warsaw (i.e. 19, 25).
I think that more than 40.000 German troops were used to fight in the uprising. Don't forget units that were already there incl. SA, SD, SS, Gestapo, Gendarmerie, Schutz polizei, Flak and Luftwaffe units etc.
Secondly, the accepted German casualty figures for the Warsaw Uprising show a ratio of nearly two dead and missing to one wounded (17,000 : 9,000). This is almost the reverse of the ratios in other comparable operations. For example, during their original conquest of Poland, the Germans suffered a ratio of one killed or missing to every two wounded (13,000 : 27,000) and during the guerrilla phase in the Balkans it was one killed or missing to over one and a half wounded (18,000 : 29,000).
There were several reasons for it:
1. A lot of german units were encirceled and destroyed by polish soldiers. If they were buried by Poles Germans sometimes couldn't find them.
2. Nature of city fighting is such that not all bodies are recovered (buildings falling apart, fire, mass graves to diminish chance of plague etc)
3. German POWs had the same shelters as Poles that means that they could suffer the same fate of being bombed and entombed in city debris.
4. SS (not Waffen SS which was considered combat formation by polish underground movement), SD, polizei, gendarmerie, gestapo were shot at hand as they were considered criminal organisations (which they were) and guilty of war crimes.
Thirdly, the official losses of Wehrmacht units stationed in the General Gouvernment (of which Warsaw was the capital) between August 1942 and December 1944 are given as 6,722 soldiers, 2,805 SS and police, and 1,984 Reichsdeutsch and "VC men" - 11,511 in total. Even assuming that that this figure only represents the dead, it would mean that, having subtracted the 10,000 claimed as killed in the Warsaw Uprising, only about 1,500 Germans died at the hands of the Polish resistance in the General Gouvernment outside Warsaw in the 1,900+ days of the German occupation - less than one a day. This seems on the low side, unless the Polish resistance, with the exception of Warsaw in August-Sptember 1944, was not very effective.
I don't think that those figures do include german losses in Warsaw uprasing because of two reasons:
1. Warsaw Uprising was not underground movement or partisan action. It was seen by the german army as the main operation to keep eastern bank of Vistula free of soviets. It was army group operation that is probably why uprasing casualty figures are not included.
2. The figure presented by you is way to small to include uprising casualty figures.
One more thing polish partisan/underground movement did not finish on GG borders. Especially strong partisan forces were deployed on eastern borders of Poland (in today's Lithuania, Ukraine and Belarussia).
But to some extent you may be right about inactivity of polish resistance. But that was done for reason. Home Army simply did not want polish civilians to suffer german repressions. While quite inactive, Home Army was about 350.000 strong and was preparing for major uprising on the whole country area. Some similarites to 1918 were expected i.e. collapse of Austrian/German armies in which case country uprasing would start.
P.S. Can anyone suggest what "VC men" may mean in the paragraph before last? As it is bracketed with "Reichsdeutsch", I thought it might refer to Volksdeutsch, some of whom were settled in the General Gouvernment.
You are probably right as VC should be surely VD - Volksdeutsche. Don't forget that there was quite strong german minority before WWII.
Hope that helped!
ps. Do you need exact figures, OoB, etc, from recent polish publications?
