The book is not very well researched and it is missing many important historical facts.
For example, it repeats the old German propaganda and myth that the Polish Air Force was destroyed on the ground in the first two days of September 1939.This, of course, is simply untrue. Polish squadrons were deployed to reserve airfields following the mobilization on 30 and 31 August, and played an active role in the campaign till September 17th, when the Red Army invaded Poland from the east and the evacuation order was given.
This book does not even mention the Polish-Soviet War (February 1919 – March 1921). This War was an armed conflict between the Second Polish Republic, the Ukrainian People's Republic, Soviet Russia and Soviet Ukraine over the control of an area equivalent to today's Ukraine and parts of modern-day Belarus. In 1921 Poland won and stopped the Communist Revolution from spreading into Europe. Had Poland lost this war and let the Red Army advance into Europe, then Germany, Hungary, Romania, Italy might have gone Communist.
