    1. Thank you Allen Paul. It is not often that a book is written by a non-Pole that clearly shows a simpatico toward the Polish people, as well as a careful factual understanding of their history. Until the death of Lech Kaczynski and his entourage, the world still knew very little about the Katyn Massacre, and there was not that much available in the popular press for people who wanted to learn more. The Katyn massacre is a harsh reminder of what the Soviet Union and its supporters and sympathizers [...]


    2. Allen Paul, about whom I did not know anything before this book fell into my hands, has done a remarkable job writing about historical events that took place in Katyn and the Soviet Union as such. He lets the reader see the fear and hope of those whose closest relatives - brothers and husbands, were shot and the cinics of the Soviet Union Party Committee and Stalin himself when he told that he thinks, the Polish prisoners have run away. The denial of the tragedy seems unacceptable for a 21st cen [...]


    3. I'm not happy about this book, because description don't match with content. Hard reading, book is full with historical events and surnames, and that all written from one viewpoint (author's), without possibility me to decide who guilty and who not. Just 1/4 of book maybe is written about real people stories, and other - bad history book. Of Course historical event is horrible and changed many life - for that two stars, but book I didn't like.


    4. This is an excellent book spoiled only by mis-spellings and some bad editing. The story of Katyn and the marginalisation of the Polish nation by the Soviet Union,Realpolitik and geography should be known by all (as should the atrocities and duplicities committed by Stalin and his reign of terror within and beyond the boundaries of Russia). This is an ideal companion volume to Solzhenitsyn's Gulag Archipelago.


    5. I pass Andrzej Pitynski's statue and memorial to Katyn in Jersey City at Exchange Place. Time to read about it.


    6. In-depth review of the Katyn massacre. 2010 edition's conclusion on the recent Russian view of the events is particularly enlightening.
