The dark history of Poland from Ghengis Kahn through the dismal Communist era is told through fictional stories. The freedom- loving Polish people have found scant freedom throughout history and are pitied, respected and loved by the reader. Michener makes the history go down easily, as usual!
Even if you are not so interested in Poland, this sweeping story, involving all of Europe, may interest you.
I've just finished reading "The Covenant" and "The Source"; however, "Poland" is my favorite, as it has tied up so many loose ends for me. Part of the book fits with our current terrorist problem, but the big question that this book left unanswered: The Nazis were attempting genocide toward the Poles as well as the Jews, so when a nation has experienced this, how can a portion of its population still be anti- Semitic?
I started Michener's "Legacy" yesterday, which deals with our constitution.
