No Greater Ally: The Untold Story of Poland's Forces in World War II (Perfect Paperback)

Monday, July 25, 2011
This is one of the most comprehensive works on this subject. It includes not only detailed descriptions of relatively well-known events (September 1939, the Battle of Britain, Monte Cassino, and Warsaw Uprising) but also lesser-known ones such as Poles fighting a large-scale guerrilla war at home (1939-1945), fighting as fliers in the anti-German Allied air war (1940-1945), and fighting as regular soldiers in 1940 western Europe, in 1942-1943 Africa, in post-1941 Soviet Union, in 1943-1945 Italy, and in 1944-1945 post-D-Day western Europe >>more...

W obronie prawdziwej historii Polski

Thursday, June 23, 2011
Wyrażenia używane w polskiej pamięci narodowej, która musi być kultywowana dla dobra narodu polskiego jak i świadomości narodowej Polaków, mają podstawowe znaczenie. Możemy obserwować inne narody dobrze nam znane, takie jak Żydzi i Anglicy, dla których kutywowanie ciągłości pamięci narodowej jest podstawową mądrością polityczną. >>more...

Saturday, June 11, 2011
This book (review based on 1946 edition) is probably the first English-language book on the subject of Polish deportees. In the Preface, poet T. S.

This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen

Saturday, June 4, 2011
Instead of repeating the many other reviewers, I focus on certain issues. To begin with, accusations have been leveled against the author for being calloused towards Jewish deaths. In actuality, he sympathetically describes the human scenes of suffering, such as the dead and trampled infants in the death trains, the sick being shot and dumped into the pyres, entire transports of Jews going up in smoke, etc. However, he does mention the Jewish kapos. >>more...

Konfrontacja sił w Europie w 1939 roku

Wednesday, May 4, 2011
Konfrontacja sił w Europie w dniu pierwszego stycznia w 1939 roku wydawała się
Hitlerowi bardzo korzystna, ponieważ już w dniu 25 listopada 1936 podpisał on Anty- Kominternowski Pakt z Japonią, która wkrótce rozpoczęła działania wojenne przeciwko Związkowi Sowieckiemu. Po raz pierwszy w historii świata w Mandżurii w latach 1938-1939 miały miejsce wielkie bitwy powietrzne około 400 samolotów. Hitler liczył na atak na ZSSR około 600 dywizjami. W tym 200 dywizji Armii Kwantungu, z którymi miał współdziałać atak z zachodu 220 dywizji niemieckich, stu polskich i około 80 dywizji innych sojuszników Niemiec – razem, jak powtarzam siłą około 600 dywizji przeciwko znacznie mniejszym liczebnie 170 dywizjom sowieckim w 1939 roku. Siły sowieckie były powiększone w 1941 roku do stanu 225 dywizji. >>more...

The Mass Deportation of Poles to Siberia: A Historical Narrative based on the written testimony of the Polish Siberian survivors

Sunday, April 17, 2011
This work consists of dozens of 2-4 page testimonies of Poles who lived in the Soviet-annexed Kresy (Poland's pre-WWII eastern half), and who were deported in 1940-1941 as "enemies of the people" by the Soviet Communist authorities and NKVD. The testimonies touch on prewar life and the start of WWII in 1939, the early Soviet occupation, the fateful night of arrest and deportation, and long trip to the Gulags, the unspeakable living and working conditions there, the many deaths in the Gulags, the "amnesty" caused by Nazi Germany attacking its erstwhile Soviet ally in June 1941, the freed surviving remnants of the Gulags gathering in the southern USSR, the participation in the Battle of Monte Cassino, and the post-WWII life in various countries (especially the USA). >>more...

Zaglada Zydow w Krakowie (Cracoviana) (Polish Edition)

Thursday, March 3, 2011
German propaganda portrayed the forced confinement of Jews in ghettos as a protective measure against typhus. When typhus epidemics did not break out, the Germans changed their story. They now said that Jews had a natural symbiosis with lice, which was why they could easily spread typhus while not becoming ill themselves, and for which reason they still had to be isolated. (p. 43). Although the ghettoization of the Jews failed to starve and sicken them out of existence, the mortality rate was nevertheless 13 times that of the natural prewar rate. (p. 50) >>more...

Teutonic Lies About History of „Kaliningrad” – Letter to Wikipedia

Saturday, December 25, 2010
Balto-Slavic past of Kaliningrad should be included in the rich history of this strategically important region of Europe. Thus the early interest in establishing an international rule of law in Poland was caused by a forgery committed by the German Armed Brethren, who obtained a temporary fief of Chełmno from Konrad I of Mazovia (1187–1247) in 1228 in the Act of Kruszwica. The temporary fief of Chełmno was obtained by the Teutonic Knights for the time needed to convert the Balto-Slavic Prussians to Christianity. >>more...
