Fuegner, Richard S.: A Nation Defiant Polish Resistance To The German Occupation Of Poland (Edina, MN, Beaver's Pond Press, 2014)
My one criticism of the book is that is was published by a small vanity press in Minnesota, Beaver's Pond Press, and the editing was not up to par. The book is a slick presentation with a nice cover, good printing, and acceptable illustrations which are numerous. But it is also loaded with many typographical errors, missing words, and other linguistic mistakes which a good editor would have corrected. The author, Richard S. Fuegner, is now 81 years old and the book was published three years ago in 2014, when he was 79. It is possible that at his advanced age Mr. Fuegner chose to use a vanity press rather than risk becoming disabled or dying before a traditional, major publisher could be found to publish the book. If so, that is a shame. Mr. Fuegner had a previous record of multiple published books and this book deserved a better publisher. But don't let the errors stop you from reading the book. It really is a masterful piece of research, organization, documentation, and writing. It is well worth the time and the money necessary to order and read it. It will teach you a great deal about what happened in Poland and what could happen in the next four years in America.
