It’s a decision we did not take lightly. I tried to strike a happy medium between Norman Davies’ approach in Rising ’44 (where he straight-up called people "Mr. H" and "Gen. G" rather than burden Westerners with learning the pronunciation) and a full on, parenthetical pronunciation guide with full diacritical mark implementation.
Thank you for your readership.
Gungan, click that link on the Lodz piece. I think you’ll find what you’re looking for in there.
Lots of great comments here. Couple comments to make.
We’re not in Poland right now, but completed a two week trip prior to E3. I miss the place and the people already.
Urobulos: Love Three Moves Ahead. I’ve actually been on their podcast a few times as a guest. Rob and Troy are good friends and great colleagues.
And for everyone discussing the history of the Uprising, it’s exciting to see that kind of discussion here in the comments. If you’re interested in learning more I can’t recommend Rising ’44 by Norman Davies enough. It’s an incredibly dense book, one that I’m still making my way through.
What a beautiful video. Thank you for sharing it.
