Rising '44...the book
- View SourceI've been reading this book and have found it to be a bit un appetizing.
It diverges from the main title a hell of a lot and manages to time "jump"
at almost every page.
The main context should be about the rising and not about how the
background bits were going on
between all the Allied camps. It seems to be more interested in what went
on behind the scenes that
what went on during the actual fighting. Don't get me wrong there are some
parts that are devoted to
the actual events but not enough of them. There are also terrible spelling
mistakes with the names of the
main characters, I think the author tried to place the names as they are
pronounced, which he shouldn't do
The Gen. Bor is spelled "Boor" and Zoliborz is spelled with an atrocious
"Battalion "Zoska" is also misspelt as are numerous others.
In my humble opinion the author should have concentrated on the actual
events and not "Time" skipped
between different events, it can be a bit confusing.
