Britain and Poland 1939-1943 by Anita J. Prazmowska
Book DescriptionPoland was a problematic issue for the Big Powers throughout the Second World War. For Britain, Poland was a major stumbling block in British-Soviet relations as Polish-Soviet territorial disputes clashed with the needs of the British-Soviet-United States alliance. As the Polish government-in-exile attempted to obtain a guarantee of British support, and many thousands of Polish troops fought for the British cause, the perception grew that the Churchill government had a debt to pay. Ultimately, however, it was a debt which Britain could not discharge because of its dependence on Soviet participation in the war. In this book Anita Prazmowska looks at British policies from the point of view of wartime strategy, relating this to Polish government expectations and policies. She describes a tragic situation where Polish soldiers were trapped between the grandiose and unrealistic plans of their government and the harsh realities of a war which they fought with no prospect of a satisfactory outcome for them or their country.

Eastern Europe and the Origins of the Second World War, Hardback (July 2000)» View all books by Anita J. Prazmowska
Czechoslovakia, Poland, Romania and the Baltic States have been treated in the past as victims of Nazi aggression. This study disagrees with this approach and suggests an alternative view, namely that of states which had to grapple with complex economic, political and military dilemmas.
