It is basiically the best intro on the Polish side of history/suffering around,i.e., wets your appetite to read more - as you will want to after reading this great and powerful little book. You can read this in under an hour and be pretty well informed. This book works and is great because it will not be overwhelming. This book is cear, concise and to the point - not a wasted word.
Great, great starter book on learning the "real truth on how a heroic and proud Poland endured through the war. The American media, or whomevers' it is, has distorted and lied merclessly and horribly about Poland's role in WWII. This book is a perfect start to correct and proper thinking on Poland's incredibly "heroic," role. Fact: Poland, unlike every other country in Europe, NEVER, EVER COLLABORATED with the Gemans! However, Denmark/One of Germaan's most enthusiastic helpers,i.e., Danish SS Terror machine!;, Sweden, Czeckoslovakia (back then), France, Romania, Ukrainians, Lithuanians, Norway, even Jews and Jewish Communists/Kapos etc, etc, etc... collaborated with the German Nazis...! Again, ONLY POLAND, NEVER, EVER, collaborated with the Germans - Period! After reading this, read "The Forgotten Holocaust: Poles Under Nazi Occupation," by noted historian Richard Lukas. Get this book to every library and school you can - but do something. Jane Kooyeh/Thank you!
