There is more info on wikipedia than in this volume - which is greatly disappointing .
That being said UNLESS you are really desperate for basic information on Poles in WWII, go ahead and but it but do not expect to much otherwise its a waste of money.
I have given it three stars instead of two just because I found the pictures very amusing...

But there are things that aren't good, and this concerns the book, not the seller).
* First published in 1982 (e.g., before fall of Berlin Wall, Warsaw Pact and USSR), and so the info is dated and should be updated (easy to do in a couple places to just not talk from cold war language).
* Not enough info - needs more pictures, or info on unit organization, equipment
