    Another recommendation for 2nd Polish Corps collectors

    RAMIE PANCERNE 2 Polskiego Korpusu. (or The Armoured Arm of the 2nd Polish Corps) Published in Rome 1946 by Referat Kulturyi Prasy 2 Warszawskiej Dywizji Pancernej. Text by Michał Siemiradzki, includes several hundred photographs by T. Szumański (offical war photographer with the Polish 2nd Armoured Division), the cover graphics and inner photomontages are all by the brilliant war-artist Stanisław Gliwa. This is now quite rare period photoalbum. Just over 2700 were printed in Polish and and edition of 1500 copies printed in English. There were at least two different bindings; one with an embossed cloth cover and one like the attachment a printed cover glued to heavy board back with a cloth spine.

    This is an English edition—though the cover text remained in Polish.

    Should the list be just English language books?
    Yes, I feel that for now it should as this forum does cater to the non-Polish speaking collectors and enthusiasts of Polish militaria and history.

    Heres a list (in no particular order) of some extra special books not yet mentioned. These have all left a strong and lasting impression on me. They truly are must reads and I cannot overstress their importance to anyone seeking a thorough understanding of Polish history during WW2:

    Wasn't The Long Walk found to be a 'fake' memoir story?

    A great website for checking editions of books and what has been published etc (even Polish language) is the World Cat billed as The World's Largest Library Catalog.

    I find it an invaluable resource : The World's Largest Library Catalog
