"The Eagle Unbowed: Poland and the Poles in the Second World War" by Halik Kochanski is about Poland and Polish people during the Second World War. The book is divided into chapters thematically. There is chapter on the holocaust in Poland, a chapter on non-combatant Poles who left the country, a chapter on Poland's contribution to the allied war effort and many others. The book contains a lot of material I didn't know about and discusses controversial issues like the Poles killing Jews, how much they helped Jews, collaboration with the Germans and so on. For example, many Poles took money in exchange for hiding them from the Germans. Some people have claimed they should have helped Jews without a financial reward but this doesn't allow for the fact that many Poles didn't have enough to eat for themselves never mind supporting another person with no compensation. The book also explains the political and strategic decisions that led to Soviet takeover of Poland at the end of the war. Anybody interested in the Second World War should read this book.
