hello, can you please tell me where I can find God's Playground (the 2nd volume) by Norman Davies in electronic format and free. Or other books about the history of Poland and especially about the WWII period, about the Warsaw Uprising, and about the communist regime in Poland. thanks.

p.s.: and, of course, if you could possibly tell me how to get these books free and in electronic format.

oh, I forgot to mention that I do not speak Polish (I'm not Polish). if you know links for these books translated in English, it would be great. thanks again.

You are asking on public forum for illegal thing? ;o

According to Polish law it is not illegal if you don't distribute it and download
only for educational purposes.

I want these only for educational purposes. It's for my paper.

I deleted the links for Polish books as you have no use for them.
I'll search for English versions and let you know if I find anything.

This is why I asked. I live in Romania and I cannot find these books in the library of my university.

Maybe his local library in Romania doesn't have books about POLISH
history in ENGLISH language. He's looking for info about Polish history
and he came to a right forum :)

Here, 'Google Books' uploaded the entire thing online for free and the volume your looking for. As for the books themselves, the God's Playground are probably the best books availalbe on Polish history as a whole; I recommend for anyone whom has an interest in the subject or just beginning to buy both of them
