Description  more details

"In A Travellers' History of Poland, John Radzilowski vividly describes the beginnings of the country, first fragmented then reborn to overcome the aggression of the Teutoric Knights and its greedy neighbors.
Poland enjoyed a Golden Age in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries but a gradual decline then led to Poland losing its autonomy despite winning many battles with its army's legendary military skill and gallantry. Yet the spirit of the country and its people lived on.
Since the horrors of the Second World War and Soviet control, Poland has gradually regained its rightful place in Europe, joining NATO in 1999 and in May 2004, the EU.
It is playing a new role on the European and international stage.
This makes now an ideal time to introduce students and travellers to Poland and its complex history through the pages of this Traveller's History."
