The Great Powers and Poland free pdf This definitive study provides a comprehensive diplomatic history of Poland during the most seminal period in its existence, when its destiny lay in the hands of France, Great Britain, and the United States. Although sovereign in principle, Poland was little more than an object of the Great Powers' politics and rapidly changing relationships from the end of WWI to the end of WWII. Enriched by unique anecdotes and archival material, the book ends with Poland's tragic abandonment by the West into the hands of the Soviet Union.

About Jan Karski

Jan Karski (1914-2000) was a young diplomat when Hitler invaded Poland in 1939. Taken prisoner by the Soviet Red Army, Karski escaped and joined the Polish underground. He infiltrated both the Warsaw Ghetto and a German concentration camp and then carried the first eyewitness accounts of the Holocaust to a mostly disbelieving West. After World War II, Karski earned a Ph.D. from Georgetown University, where he served as a distinguished professor in the School of Foreign Service for forty years.
