    I just finished, "I Saw Poland Betrayed" by Arthur Bliss Lane. It was a summary of his time as Ambassador in Poland, he resigned his position in protest. Historically speaking it is interesting, but the lessons one can draw from it are almost totally about morals, the morals of 1946. Technology has so transformed life in the intervening time that totalitarian regimes can no longer operate with the scale and latitude of the Soviet Union. I think from that perspective it is limited in its' appeal. I just finished, "I Saw Poland Betrayed" by Arthur Bliss Lane.

Lane attempts to outrage the reader as if to crusade against the injustices of the cold war Russian state yet even he realizes that, short of war, the Soviets respect nothing but naked power.

    Fantastic first-hand relation of the times in Poland between the warsaw uprising 1944 and the falisified elections in january 1947 wchich doomed Poland into 44 years of being soviet colony (or rather formalised it). A slight different take on the intententions of westerns countries at Yalta and Potsdam conferences then it is usually depicted in polish histography. The book is also a good set of facts on eastern european history that are either forgoten or altered during half century of soviet pro Fantastic first-hand relation of the times in Poland between the warsaw uprising 1944 and the falisified elections in january 1947 wchich doomed Poland into 44 years of being soviet colony (or rather formalised it).

    Ah politics. Such sadness for so many people for so many years. An excellent paean to the people of Poland for having to hear how much of a friend the United States was, to their betrayal by the powers that be, since Yalta and Potsdam. And here we are in 2018, still playing the shell game. And so many innocent people, harassed, put to death, unable to have free elections, unable to live as they wanted, with the tacit agreement of the US government. Kudos to Ambassador Lane for retiring and then Ah politics. Such sadness for so many people for so many years.

Kudos to Ambassador Lane for retiring and then publishing this, validating his personal feeling about what SHOULD have happened in Poland.
