'Poland is not East or West. Poland is at the center of European civilization. It has contributed mightily to that civilization. It is doing so today by being magnificently unreconciled to oppression.'
― Ronald Reagan'There are few virtues that the Poles do not possess—and there are few mistakes they have ever avoided.'
― Winston Churchill'No frogs can sing as well as Polish ones.'
― Adam Mickiewicz, Pan TadeuszHello all and welcome to 'The White Eagle & the Knight!'
Of the Paradox games I own EU IV might be the one I have the least experience with even though i find the period interesting. Up until now I've resisted the urge to try an EU IV AAR because I've never felt confident in how I handled the game. I decided to take the plunge and see how it goes and with Poland being such a fascinating country with a heroic if often tragic past I wanted to try my hand and see if I can give her a happier fate than in our time line. As always while this is not an 'interactive' AAR as such I'm very happy to get feedback and suggestions from readers!
This will be a history book AAR for the most part, though i may well use 'in-universe' documents and maybe some fictional histories to give some voice to things.
