    A 'concise' and informative read on the breadth of Polish history A good precursor read to God's Playground which comes in two volumes and contains much detailThis book is heavy in parts but a complete Polish history is not for the faint of heartThoroughly enjoyable and eye opening especially for us 'sheltered' Westerners
