No Greater Ally
The Untold Story of Poland's Forces in World War II 
Kenneth K. Koskodan

I just finished reading this disturbing yet inspiring documentation of Poland's struggle for freedom during WW II. The following entry from the book reveals its message:

But, Poles throughout the rest of the world who fought in World War II have, for the most part been left with little in terms of legacy except the notion of naiveté and ineptitude. Perhaps there is some truth in considering the people of World War II Poland naïve, not in their abilities or fighting spirit, nor their honor, but rather in their belief in the good intentions of their allies. "For your freedom and ours", is a slogan and rallying cry of the Polish military dating to before World War I. During World War II the Polish people fought for their freedom and ours. ours was achieved. Theirs was stolen from them in shameful and cowardly fashion. With the perseverance through nearly insurmountable odds that had carried them through the horrors of war, some found their individual freedoms on their own. They rebuilt their lives, raised their families, and over time forgave the world the indignities forced upon them. Among themselves they privately recounted the tales of their war, all the while hearing the world sing the praises of others who fought. The world owes a debt of gratitude that has yet to be paid to the unknown soldiers of Poland.
