Consumer Reviews

  1. I have questions about the publication The Polish Army in 1939 Paperback
    by Vincent W. Rospond. Many books by you, are translations of older documents. if this book m follows the same pattern, it might merely contain translated documents I already have, and there would be no point in my ordering this book. On he other hand, if it is a completely new and original work, OR, if it is a translations of documents I don’t have, then I should find it very useful Is this a new publication, or simply a translation of older ones. If the latter, what are the publications that is offers?.

    • Hi Mark,

      It is a combination of older and newer sources. I used Neuberger and Zaloga, but also a variety of other articles and publications to put this together. I tried to find examples of all the different pieces of equipment used by the Polish forces used during the campaign. I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions. Best
