Re: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 073 - jo

I guess you can put "until 1466" in the title, but that's not the end of the Poland-Order wars, the way I remember it from school, although I haven't yet checked if Prutz talks about the later period. If I recall correctly, the last war between the two came in 1520. EDIT: And here's a map of the are...

Re: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 073 - jo

I've left the title open for the present until I, or preferably you, can come up with something descriptive but a bit shorter...
Maybe "The struggle between the Teutonic Order and Poland continues"? This of course ignores the Scandinavia and Russia-related parts of the section...

Re: The Deluge (vol 2) by Henryk Sienkiewicz [HIST NOVEL]-ans

Hello Jeff, what a surprise :) (I'm talking about you language skills).
I'll be happy to reserve sections for you, but I haven't seen you post a test yet. Have you received any feedback on your files so far?

EDIT: OK, I see your first file was OKed without any mention of any technical issues.

Re: [POL]Dyskusje na temat polskich tekstów, źródeł i materiałów

Wolne Lektury często używają wydań z lat 60. i 70., więc nie wiem, jak sprawa wygląda od tej strony. Skoro WL wciąż istnieją znaczy, że nikt ich nie pozwał o złamanie polskiego prawa :D ale też prawo USA mówi wyraźnie o dacie publikacji. :hmm:
