      Greetings to you Judith,
      Thanks for your email.
      I transferred my story "Human Traces" onto to a floppy with the intention of sending it to you.
      Please let me know the address you'd like me to post it to.
      I am hoping that you would put some life into my story by adding dialogs, as if were writing a screenplay.
      Kind regards, Witold.

      Stanley Cloud is the former TIME Magazine Washington, Moscow, Saigon and Bangkok Bureau Chief and, as Contributing Editor, launched a column of press criticism.


      Lynne Olson, formerly Moscow correspondent for Associated Press & Washington correspondent for the Baltimore, is the author of Freedom’s Daughters, a history of women in the civil rights movement.


      The Polish airmen who escaped their savaged country in 1939 made a major contribution to the Royal Air Force's victory in the Battle of Britain in 1940. 303 Squadron, which they formed, was the most successful of all RAF units in shooting down German aircraft attempting to bomb Britain into surrender. Their subsequent treatment by the British government, including its refusal to let the survivors march in the Victory Parade of 1946 in craven deference to Stalin, was one of the most shameful episodes of the Cold War.
      --Sir John Keegan, author of The Face of Battle, A History of Warfare and The Second World War

      This book presents us with one of the most disgraceful ethical horrors of World War II -- how, believing the need to support Stalin at all costs, we discredited, and later neglected, our oldest, bravest, and most trustworthy ally in order to conceal the truth of a revolting crime."
        --Robert Conquest, author of Stalin and The Great Terror

      Olson and Cloud’s book is both a tribute to the Polish pilots and, more broadly, an eloquent indictment of the realpolitik that led Britain and America to turn their backs on Poland later in the war in a craven attempt to appease Stalin. Beginning as a compelling account of the Poles who fled their country in 1939 to fight for the allies, this account ends as a grim tale of political treachery and backstabbing.
