originally came with the disclaimer that it represented my personal notes
from a number of sources, and should not be judged by professional academic
standards. Where there are conflicts, I've resolved them the usual methods
(greatest number of sources agreeing, personal opinion of the source, and
what makes the best story.) Main sources were:
The Formation of the Polish State - Manteuffel (Nice Socio-Geo-Political
The Polish Way - Zamoyski (Unapologetically nationalistic)
History of Poland (2nd ed.) - Gieysztor, et al.
Various Norman Davies
Cambridge History of Poland
Historical Atlas of Poland
There are a lot of little snips here and there from any book with 'Poland' in
the title. I'd've done footnotes if I'd realized how big the damned thing
was gonna get. Half the time I can't remember where I read some of it.
Most everyone draws on Gall(us) for this period. I'd eat a bug for a full
translation of that particular chronicle.
