    Unvanquished PDF/EPUB Ì Hardcover unvanquished kindle, Unvanquished eBookA massive tome extremely well researched story about a little known but extraordinary father of modern Poland Particularly impressive when you realise the author is not a historian by profession However the story telling is long winded and sometimes repetitive The preamble about Polish history goes on for over 150 pages before you reach the subject for example Nevertheless kudos for putting the spotlight on Eastern Europe between the wars
