The Armed Forces Delegation for Poland (Delegatura Sił Zbrojnych na Kraj) was a Polish anticommunist resistance organization, formed on May 7, 1945, by Commander-in-Chief of the Polish Armed Forces, General Władysław Anders, as a continuation of the NIE ("NO") organization. Its purpose was to oppose the Soviet occupation of Poland. It was dissolved on August 8, 1945.
The Delegation was commanded by Colonel Jan Rzepecki, who designated his deputy, Colonel Janusz Bokszczanin. Its structure was based on that of the Home Army, and after its dissolution, new anti-Communist organization Freedom and Independence was created. The Armed Forces Delegation for Poland was divided into three areas:
- Central (under Colonel Jan Mazurkiewicz), covering the districts of Warsaw, Lublin, Kielce, Bialystok and Lodz,
- Western (under Colonel Jan Szczurek-Cergowski), covering the districts of Bydgoszcz, Poznan, Gdansk, Szczecin and Olsztyn,
- Southern (under Colonel Antoni Sanojca), covering the districts of Krakow, Rzeszow, Katowice and Wroclaw.
