What's New ?
      
          Polish Greatness (Blog) is pleased to present
     a Special series called
"Daily Chronicles of History"
    Beginning January 1, 2018 there will be daily posts
featuring events from Polish history and World War Two.










This special series will focus on Poland's struggle throughout the cataclysmic years of
World War Two, the rise of fascism, the notorious NKVD, Hitler and Stalin's pact, the
invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, the murders and treachery
perpetrated by Germany and Russia on Polish citizens (upon both Christians and Jews),
the Katyn Massacre, the Nazi German concentration camps and death camps,
deportations, work camps, pogroms, and most sinister of all, the propaganda created by
the Nazis to destroy the very soul of a nation. It is essential, I believe that an
understanding of Poland must include some knowledge about its distant history,
therefore I also provide some posts about the partitions of Poland, its inter-war years, as
well as some facts from time to time about its medieval period. There will be a post every
day from January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018.

POLISH GREATNESS.COM IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE
A CELEBRATION OF ITS 10-TH ANNIVERSARY
!!
September 1, 2017 marks the 10th Anniversary of Polish Greatness.com

Polish Greatness.com has grown considerably with the addition of new features, such as
Polish Culture (entirely devoted to Polish music of all genres), a section on book reviews,
(this section on What's New) and most notably the addition of a blog started in 2010 aptly
entitled
Polish Greatness (Blog).

To celebrate this 10th Anniversary, I have created the Polish Greatness Database -
Books which presents a vast grid of jpeg images of more than 200 book covers dealing
with many topics such as Polish WWII history, Polish Military, Polish Medieval History,
Polish Memoirs and much more. Book covers have been arranged in thumbnail
format and linked to the corresponding pages in Amazon where you can read summaries
of the books,information about its authors, reviews, and order books if you wish).

The theme that I have chosen for this 10th Anniversary Special is the Polish White Tailed
Eagle (which is also featured in the logo I have added to these web pages).

It is fitting to pay tribute to an important symbol of the Polish nation.  You should
be aware that the Polish White-Tailed Eagle was on the brink of extinction until, through
great efforts, this magnificent breed has been saved from oblivion.  It is fascinating to
note the numerous ways in which the Polish Eagle symbol is featured in Polish culture.
I hope that you will enjoy reading these special features, and learn as much as I have!

Polish Greatness.com is a tribute to the Polish men, women and children who fought so
valiantly for their freedom, despite all the odds against them. They are the reason I
created this website. It is my mission to enlighten the world about Poland's history, and
provide historical facts that shed light on the tragedies of a ravaged nation and its peoples.

History is part of our lifeblood. Without knowledge of the past, we cannot understand the
present nor prepare for the future. The lessons of history help us to recognize and avoid
dangerous pitfalls, so that we do not repeat past mistakes.  I encourage you all to read
history, especially Polish history.  We must understand that the greatness of a country
depends on whether its people practice the values of honor, decency, and respect.  


Thank you for your interest in Polish history and in Polish Greatness.com!!

Hero of Two Nations
Captain Stefan P. Wesolowski
(1909-1987)
By Prof. Dr. Zdzislaw P. Wesolowski

It is the harrowing story of one of the 197 crew members, Stefan P.
Wesolowski, Signalist Petty Officer of the Polish Naval Destroyer,
the ORP Blyskawica as she sailed out of the Port of Gdnyia
on the eve of World War Two.  

It was the beginning of a treacherous journey and long odyssey which ended
when Captain Wesolowski reached the United States and
became an American citizen.

HERO OF THE WARSAW UPRISING"













The Warsaw Uprising was one of the most brutal and destructive urban battles of
World War Two. The military might of the Wehrmacht was launched against the
Polish insurgents with all its force.   

Amidst the maelstrom there was one British Officer, Lieutenant John Ward,  who
had the courage to remain in Warsaw throughout the Uprising.  
He was the "Voice" of the Polish Resistance.
