    A well-written chronicle of one of Poland's greatest heroes, a man virtually unknown in the U.S. The author, Jedrzejewicz, knew Pilsudski well, as an officer in the Polish army during WWI and in several positions during the Pilsudski regime. There are excellent descriptions of Pilsudski's great train robbery, his role in WWI, the battle of Warsaw which routed the Bolsheviks, and his 1926 coup. From his eulogy: Pilsudski gave Poland freedom, boundaries, power and respect.
