This collection of letters and documents, covering Kot's ambassadorship to Russia after the conclusion of the Russo-Polish Agreement of July 1941, and his stay in the Near East from August 1942 to February 1943, contains interesting information on the freeing of Polish citizens from Soviet detention camps, the formation of the Polish army, the difficulties in getting the Soviets to carry out the terms of the agreement, the political background to the evacuation of the Polish troops from Russia, and the rivalry between Sikorski and Anders. In a polemical 75-page preface Kot ardently supports Sikorski and attacks Anders.
