The new SABATON History Channel has launched with an episode about one of the band’s best-loved songs – the Polish anthem ’40:1′.

The first episode, which tells the story of the Battle of Wizna in World War II, when a few hundred Polish soldiers stood against more than 40,000 German invaders, is available to view below.

SABATON History is a unique collaboration between the band themselves and multimedia historians Indy Neidell and Timeghost, capturing the power of social media to tell the stories behind SABATON’s songs.
