My Name Is Million: The Experiences of an Englishwoman in Poland

Friday, August 27, 2010
This book, originally published in 1940 by an anonymous Englishwoman who was married to a Pole, should not be confused with two other books bearing the same title--A 1942 work by the famous Polish writer Adam Mickiewicz, and a 1978 book by W. S. Kuniczak. >>more...

The Cruel Hunters: SS-Sonderkommando Dirlewanger Hitler's Most Notorious Anti-Partisan Unit (Schiffer Military History)

Tuesday, July 20, 2010
I overlook any stylistic deficiencies of this work and focus on its historical content. The book begins with Dirlewanger's early life, service in WWI, etc. The account of his mid-1930's crime of statutory rape (pp. 28-29, 48-49) makes it unclear if the age of consent in Nazi Germany had been only 14. >>more...

Wednesday, July 14, 2010
 “The Golden Age of Poland” during the Renaissance occurred when Poland-Lithuania, the largest state within western Christianity was most tolerant in Europe, and had the most advanced citizen’s rights.

The eighteenth decisive battle of the world: Warsaw, 1920 (Russian studies)

Friday, April 9, 2010
he 1920 War was not the first time that Poland had saved Europe. D'Abernon comments: "In 1684 the Ottoman invasion made its furthest advance west. The Battle of Vienna was one of the occasions when Europe owed safety to Polish valour. Already at Chocim in 1280 Polish arms attained an important victory over Asiatic assailants, but the danger was even more grave before the walls of Vienna, and John Sobieski earned the gratitude of all who value the maintenance of European civilisation." (p. 11). >>more...

The Katyn Wood murders / by Joseph Mackiewicz ; with a foreword by Arthur Bliss Lane

Saturday, March 20, 2010
This work is one of the first, if not the first, English-language book on this subject. In the Foreward, Arthur Bliss Lane, the former U.S. Ambassador to early-postwar Poland, commented: "The Katyn Massacre of over four thousand [We now know of about 25,000 total] Polish Army officers was one of the most horrible crimes of World War II, equaling the barbarity of Hitler's wholesale extermination of members of the Jewish race in the gas chambers of Oswiecim [Auschwitz] and Majdanek." (p. v). Lane's statement is ironic in view of the modern tendency to elevate the Holocaust over that of non-Jewish victims of the Nazis, and the continuing policy of devaluing Communist crimes in favor of Nazi ones.

Lenin’s mummy and the fraud of the October Revolution

Wednesday, March 3, 2010
The tragedy of Russian history is that the bloodless revolution in March 8-12, 1917 which caused on March 15, 1917 the abdication of that Tsar Nicholas II (1868-17 July 1918) and ended the rule of the Romanovs  Dynasty produced weakened Russia and gave opportunity to Berlin to use paid agents to stage political takeover of the government in St. Petersburg and secure the surrender of Russia as well as short-lasting submission of Russia to the status of a vassal of the German Empire. >>more...
