/ Poland: we have an interesting history.
In my opinion we have very interesting history, maybe it isnt well known in some countries, but in my opinion it is rich.
We have some nice achievements:
Germans (Prussia) were paying us tribes and called us their lords.
We have taken Moscov in XVII century, converted their Tshar into Catholic :P , and Russians till today celebrate the end of this war as it was yesterday (one of the most important days in their country)
We beaten Soviet Union in 1920
We had first modern constitution in Europe (second in world after USA)
We smashed (King Sobieski) Turks and saved Europe form musilms (even muslim Tatars were on our side)
We were one of main reasons Soviet Union collapsed, our Pope JPII, Brzezinski creating Al-Qaeda (he is rather American with Polish origin and Afghanistan was on our side in 80's), Solidarity.
In XIX century we believed that we are nation chosen by god :) Poland Christ of Nations :)
And there were less spectacular events but nice as well.
Like battle of Kircholm when 3000 Poles beaten 11 000 Swedes (casultes 300 Poles 8500 Swedes LOL ;) )
Or that when Napoleon (F*** him) send our troops to smash revolt on Haiti and our soldiers realized that they have to fight against nation who want to be independent, they changed side and started new life there, and that is why so many of black people from Haiti have Polish names.
