    3. I do not rate it 1 star for the original work by Sienkiewicz in Polish, but for the terrible decision to translate all the names and places phonetically by Kuniczak Andrzej becomes Andrei Czestochowa is Tchenstohova And so forth What a terrible decision to bastardize all these beautiful Polish words I couldn t enjoy the book because of it I should have stopped reading immediately and changed to a different translated edition.

    4. Interesting and in the same line started by volume 1, but way too long for my taste I was on the verge of abandoning the lecture somewhere around 70% But I finally managed to finish it and I am keeping my thoughts for the final review I will do after finishing volume 3.Review for all 3 volumes can be found at review show.

    5. Good book, well written and well documented The translation seems pretty ok However the topic is too much detailed It would be of help to a screenwritter as it captures so many angles, but why read 500 pages to know they struggled a lot and led sony fights I should choose better next time.
