THe group began the Third Silesian Uprising on May 2/3, 1921 by blowing up seven rail bridges linking Upper Silesia with the rest of Germany. THe Wawelberg Group was organized by the Polish General Staff's Section II as the "Destruction Office" in the waning days of 1920 (see History of Polish intelligence services) as rumors flew that the Inter-Allied Plebiscite Commission would grant almost all of Upper Silesia to Germany. PRompted by the rumors, the Polish Military Organization of Upper Silesia, which actively cooperated with the Polish Army, had begun forming a small, highly-specialized unit which would come to be called the Wawelberg Group.
