  1. Slower than I would like. I need to gather 50 photos. I've acquired about 30. Some from NAC and about 15 from a private owner. A few from the National Archives here in the US. I've seen some nice photos listed on this site showing the German 32. Infanterie-Division near the River Brda and a few showing 30. Infanterie-Division positions after the Piatek/Bzura fighting. Haven't found the owners yet. I'll keep at it. I've at least been able to use the after action reports from the Polish formations I'm focusing on (22PP, 33PP, and 14DP), which should provide the readers with an accurate account of things. And as difficult as it is to read someone's cursive handwriting in my native language reading/translating handwriting in Polish is exponentially more difficult! All the best, David
  2. Thanks. I appreciate that. I think the September 1939 campaign was important for several reasons. It's also sadly, too often neglected. I'll do my best to help rectify that! ?
  3. Hello all, I just signed up and since I don't speak Polish (although I like the bands Vader and Behemoth if that counts!) I thought it more polite to post in the English section first. Presently, I'm writing a military history book for Ospery Publishing (London) that deals, in part, with the fighting at Wiecbork, Lomza, and Piatek (R. Bzura area) during the September 1939 campaign. While I was reading some of the related information on the Odkrywca site I found numerous photos of the period. Many would make a nice addition to the book, but I'm not sure how I'd go about contacting any of the owners to ask permission to use a few digital copies. I'd, of course, provide proper credit, and could see if my editor could provide a copy as a 'thank you'. Thanks for any insight. David Higgins Columbus, Ohio US
