In the first years after the imposition of martial law in Poland in 1981, three enterprising reporters, themselves in the underground, taped lengthy statements by leaders of the illegal resistance (notably in Gdansk, Warsaw and Wroclaw), describing their actions, aims, strategies, agreements and disagreements, and random thoughts about Poland and its future. The interviews are put together chronologically and topically by the authors, along with substantial background and commentary of their own. A valuable source for the history of the time.
