|About the Book|
Janusz Piekałkiewicz (1925 – 1988) was a Polish underground soldier, historian, writer, as well as a television and cinema director and producer.He was a world-renowned author on many aspects of World War II history- over 30 of his books have been printed, most of them in German, and later translated to other languages. He also wrote from his experiences during the war and specialized in detailing operations within the secret services. A unique characteristic of many of his books is that chapters contain two parts. Firstly, he describes details and contemporary quoted sources and then, in the second part, he provides analysis and own commentaries to those events. According to critics, this results in a very objective presentation of the material. In addition to his well-known history books, he also wrote books about treasure hunting.
