This volume by Poland's Ambassador to the U.S.S.R. from 1941 to 1943 complements his earlier work, "Letters from Russia to General Sikorski" ("Listy z Rosji do Gen. Sikorskiego," noted here April 1956). Based on the stenographic notes taken during his 34 sessions with Stalin, Vyshinsky and Molotov, it provides illuminating source material on Soviet tactics regarding the Polish question and on the exiled government's relations with the U.S.S.R. The official notes exchanged by the two governments still await publication.
