A bounty for those near Pennsylvania
« on: September 24, 2021, 06:58:29 AM »
In the last year I have ticked off nearly every item on my Pygmy Wars "To Do" list. The Red Army section of the site was one, and I'll be putting some other stuff up soon(ish). However a single item eludes me.

At the Carlisle Barracks (near Harrisburg, PA) they have an English translation of The Russo-Polish War, 1920 by General Sikorski.

If anyone can get a copy for me I will be eternally grateful. And, as the "bounty" in the title suggests, I am willing to pay over the odds for my gratefulness.

For some reason those chapters have been released. I actually have a scan of the the original for them.

The first and third sections of the book remain an issue though.

I have the original French too. I just don't want to translate it when it has already been done.

Sorry, now you point it out I see it is only some chapters. So you are looking for someone to visit the base library and copy the chapters you need? Am I correct or out to lunch again?

Is there any other location which might have them? I ask as there is some search engine which searches libraries around the world for specific books. There might be another copy near me or someone else. Just saying.

Visit and copy, or perhaps even ring up and get them to copy. (They ignore my e-mail requests.)

It's original manuscripts, so I doubt anyone else has them.
