This Polish-language book, NATIONAL ARMED FORCES, focuses mainly on the SN (Stronnictwo Narodowe--NATIONAL PARTY) and its guerilla-arm NSZ, whose positions overlap those of the ONR, as elaborated in the Peczkis review of Narodowe Sily Zbrojne (Polish Edition). The present work consists of 3 volumes: vol. 1 (1994) bears ISSN 8390039893, vols. 2 and 3 (1996) bear ISSN 8390444623.

This work contains the nom de guerre, names, and often photos of N.S.Z. members. [The photo of "Poraj" (Stefan Marcinkowski)(vol. 3, p. 137) shows a much younger man than the one I have known since childhood.]

One NSZ document mentions how the German occupants forced the Church to promote anti-Communism, the payment of goods to Germans, volunteering for labor in Germany, etc. (vol. 2, p. 95). [The obvious German duress against the Church clarifies the accusation of Jan T. Gross about some Polish priests allegedly telling their flocks to obey the Germans by denouncing or handing-over fugitive Jews.]

The NSZ strongly repudiated the dichotomizing of Nazis and Germans: "Hitlerism is merely the fullest and most modern incarnation of the timeless German spirit--the barbaric spirit of nomadic conquest...Hitler was no tyrant...Hitler became leader because he was the most excellent expression of the timeless German-Prussian spirit and of the German peoples' deepest wishes and goals...`Adolf Hitler ist das deutsche Volk, und das deutsche Volk ist Adolf Hitler.'" (vol. 1, p. 88). Also: "Hitler turned out to be worse than Bismarck and Wilhelm II. We don't care to see later editions, and for this reason the destruction of Germany's might is our dogma." (vol. 1, p. 72).
