The opening of the Polish archives in the wake of the events of 1989 have produced a wealth of new documents that illuminate some of the murkiest and least understood aspects of recent Polish history. One of the most crucial of these is addressed in Dr Micgiel's new book. Poland in the aftermath of World War II was an utterly devastated country with much of its population either killed or imprisoned or homeless. Ravaged by both the retreating Nazi forces and the advancing Red Army and with most of itc cities completely destroyed, the Polish state in any form seemed in doubt. The struggle between the London exile government, the Communists backed by the Red Army, and local partisans and the eventual ferocious Communist repression of opposition throughout the country (a repression so violent that to this day southeast Poland is substantially unpopulated) are the subjects of this disturbing and important book.
