FORMATION OF THE POLISH STATE. by TADEUSZ MANTEUFFEL
(Andrew Gorski, Trans., Wayne State University Press. Detroit 1982)
The constant shifting alignments between Hungary, Bohemia, Poland, the
Holy Roman Empire, the Catholic Church, and others inspired me to try to
set up a lesson/class (never completed or delivered) where I would
assign people to hold signs representing the the various factions, and
move them around as a visual aid as I ran through the history.
For a brief story from the 11th C regarding Poland and Hungary, you
