  perfidious: 'General Government' is the English translation of <GeneralGouvernement>, the term for Nazi-occupied Poland during WWII.

  fredthebear: FTB tried to correct the spacing of the significant event dates above, but just kept chasing his tail, as such a list does not post the same as it appears in the preview.

<faulty> Yes, that was some attack. Apparently Black went wrong with 20...Nf5, attacking White's loose bishop; the knight move gets retracted. White's counter pin 21.Bh5 is significant.
