I have read the book in question, No Greater Ally, and despite a minor error (page 130, the 12th Podolski Lancer Regiment, my Dad's outfit, was identified
as the 12 Pulk Ulanow Pomorskich) it was well written and factual. By the way, I purchased six copies of the book some months ago @ $6.98/ copy hardcover.

This book having truthful history, can be used as research and study material by high school students. WWII is part of school study curriculum. This is good, as the more people know about the history and the truth, it will take the shadow of weakness and laughter of other countries, away from the Polish people. I too am sick of the Polish jokes and stupid questions of how come you lost the war, did you have ancient technology? My father was in the 1st Cavalry sent to defend Poland against German Tanks, he spoke of horrific battle where the Polish faught to the last man and didn’t give up, with tanks rolling over horses and men, crushing them while still alive. There was no mercy from the Germans. he was captured in the 1st battle and spent the rest of the war in POW camp and then was marched 500 k in the middle of winter, with no food, whatever clothing they had and no shelter, from one camp to another, when the allies broke through. He watched many of his friends die on the way, die of hunger, sickness, mauled by the dogs because they could not keep up, or shot.
Books like this are necessary to uncover the truth and tell the real story.
It's a history book so point of view is not applicable. Facts are. From what I've read here in this string, the book was written by a Polish-American and presents historical facts regarding Poland and its fighting of the war. Truthful and unskewed historical works are either broad or narrow in scope, as in this case, and there is nothing wrong with that. As we all know in Poland's case, books such as this are sorely needed.

I feel this is totally valid but maybe just needs mentioning.
