    Since most of the Poles in the portal are here anyway I will hijack some space.




    Happy Independence Day everybody !





    *the image comes from a blog of some quite crazy artist with a number of rather peculiar idea...
    Nonetheless he knows his craft.

    Also even if I despise Roman Dmowski and his legacy, he is still one of the men who made their considerable contribution to the success of the 2nd Republic.

    For this moment I will just simply enjoy the fact his political thought is dead and buried without attacking the man himself.





    + The Old Man himself.

    Poland conquers the world - my first and only AAR - abandoned after the conquest of New Zealand, China, Japan, India, Canada and the USA due to a fatal HDD failure...

    Especially the British - they have decisive voice in the matters of the catholic Church indeed...




    For once you could stay silent and keep your ideas and rather 'interesting' vision of history and facts to yourself.

    I believe it NOT is the right place for that anyway.

    Happy Polish indepence day! And, as our dear authAAR should know, here in the US it's veteran's day. So, let's take the time to have a moment of silence for ALL who lost their lives in or because of WWI and WWII, regardless of influence or allegence...

    Amen to that. I'd also like to remind everyone that the opinions of others should be respected here and while you may not agree with the expressed opinions and feelings of another forum member, I must insist that any personal attacks stay out of this AAR (not to mention it's against forum policy). Thanks.

    I can't do that. I got 95 out of 100 world capitals right though. I'm the only dude who knows that Muscate is the capital of Oman (mostly because of this game). I always know the little things that nobody else thinks is important.

    Same here. I can give you untold ammounts of trivia in both films and World War 2.

    What's odd is that I guessed that the country was Oman even before I read past Muscate... That's funny and a little sad...

    finally followed the link here from the interview on cannonized's AAR. i had been putting it of for some time even though your AAR kept popping up in every other one i was reading... in completely different timelines

    i must say, i was a little leary of a HOI2 poland AAR, and resisted the temptation, but the interview was quite persuasive. the moment i got a taste, i was hooked

    i have been quite impressed by any number of things; like the graphical quality, the degree of detail and insight (rivaling Kanitatlan truth be told), but i have been most impressed by the out-pouring of support from the whole community!

    im interested to see how you are able to juggle the difficulties of running a war with multiple branches of your armed forces, on multiple fronts.

    GL with your build-up to the invasion of the SU!
