Review: A Traveller's History of Poland (Traveller's History)

User Review  - James - Goodreads

An excellent summary of Polish history. The author's emotional gushing about the greatness and importance of John Paul II was a little strange given the sobriety and objectivity of the rest of the book, but a minor detail in an otherwise great book. Read full review
