regardless, his historical novels are all completely absorbing. In “Poland,” Michener
uses his famed “timeline” formula to give us an exciting history of Poland and its peoples.
Michener covers eight important periods of their history. In so doing, he manages to
work in heroic deeds, tragic occurrences, and everyday deeds. Often called “the doormat
of Europe,” Poland, as Michener clearly points out, has its own unique personality and
history. With the usual Michener research, the book povides an interesting array of
characters, both ficitional and historical. The book opens in 1981, then flashes back
(typically Michener) and finally concludes in 1981.
